I'm about a quarter of the way through At Home by Bill Bryson and, so far, it is very interesting. It's a history of normal things like kitchens, bedrooms and houses in general and much more interesting than you might think. For example, hundreds of years ago, it was customary to eat sitting on a bench rather than in a chair at a table. Consequently, people routinely picked up a wooden board to put their food on then sat on the bench eating off the board. Hence the term, 'room and board'
