learning more about home construction and maintence

I own a house built in 1904 - how can I learn more about home construction and home maintenance? I do a lot of my basic repairs myself and always make a point to watch and ask questions (non-obnoxiously) when I have repair people over.

I'd like to have a better understanding of everything in my house that isn't just from repair experience.
That being said, everything I have learned is pretty ad hoc. Is there a book that many of you recommend for learning the basics of home construction and/or maintnence? Have you found taking a class to be helpful?
