I finished the book by David Shenk named the Immortal Game today.  It was recommended to me by another chess.com member.  It proved to be a fascinating exposition on the basic history of chess, with an annotated and fascinating tactical game.  I immensely enjoyed everything but the first two chapters, which, while necessary, I though could be better written.  I will have to either buy a copy of it or reread it before I return it to the friend that loaned it to me.  I heartily recommend it as a fun read that Will titillate rather than belabor your fascination with the game.  (proviso:blog post made while drunk)
