    Bullfinch's Mythology

    (free online)

    is still a great summary of the three major influential mythologies in English-speaking culture

    - Greco-Roman

    - Norse

    - Welsh

    as well as legends of King Arthur, Robin Hood and Charlemagne

    For someone with an academic bent, The Mabinogion is a must-read for Welsh mythology and the earliest Arthurian tales. The classic is the Guest translation, but modern, scholarly English translations are more accurate and precise (if less formal and, therefore, classic-sounding).
