Recommend a book on linguistics/language history


I'm currently looking for a few (or many) books on linguistics, the history of language, and the like. Titles along the lines of "The Mother Tongue" by Bill Bryson, though preferably with fewer errors - entry-level/dilettante-type titles, rather than dense scholarly tomes.

This is all assuming that there are more out there other than the aforementioned Bryson book. I'd imagine there are, but what do I know? After all, that's why I'm asking youse guys. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
