What is a good book that would cover the basics of astronomy?

I am taking a class on astronomy next year. It is the first experience I will have in this science but I’m confident the class will be pretty advanced. I want to go into it knowing a bit about the subject. If you know a book that would cover the basics, or at the least provide good insight into what I may learn, please let me know!

    First, I would like to wish you well with your encounter of astronomy. The best basic book that comes to my mind is Dr. Suess’s Big Book of The Big Bang, yang-a-yang-on my chain. The expert witness geologist interviewed by the vampire for this intriguing subject siezed to exist soon after he experienced spontanious combustion. It is to our dismay and benefit that he went out “IN A BLAZE OF GLORY.” Don’t go hangin’ round my door, no more, no more!

    It’s hard to recommend a book without knowing what your math background is. Introductory astronomy classes are usually accessible to high school students, even at the college level – they rarely require more than algebra and a little trig, and there are literally hundreds of introductory textbooks out there.

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where
    you got your theme. With thanks
