Please recommend me a book on the basics of how computers work

So... I've been in book shops and the like and all the books they have are just on Windows 8 or perhaps a book in Linux if they're feeling adventurous, but I'm looking for a book that will tell me how computers actually work. I'm not very advanced with my computer knowledge, but I'd like to know about the foundation of how a computer works rather than the operating system or latest piece of software.
Hopefully that gives enough information to get a grasp of what I mean. Can I get some recommendations for books like this please.
