    What do you want to learn...business...technique...history...?

    I'd honestly just use your camera and play around...but that's how I learned, I ain't too good at fancy book lernin...most of those beginner books are all bullshit anyway (things you can just learn yourself). I know of a lot of great advanced lighting + business books.

    Just go to the library/book store and look through photographers books...get inspired by their work.

    The New Manual of Photography by John Hedgecoe... great easy read... covers all the basics and is relatively up to date.

    The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby is supposed to be good.

    I haven't seen this one myself, but I've picked up a couple of Adobe-related books by Kelby and I like how they're usually just organized with straight tips on every page.
