My I ask your background in the fundamentals? Even before equipment specific books, I recommend one or two on the fundamental elements of photography and human visual perception because that seems to be the most important topics and the last ones to be read. If this is your first DSRL, or even film slr, an easy to read book that covers light, exposure that will make all else that comes after, make more sense, is Bryan Peterson's "Understsanding Exposure" http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Exposure-3rd-Edition-Photographs/dp/0817439390/ref=dp_ob_title_bk
Edit: Thanks Jerry, I changed the link to your good one. Bryan also has a series of videos on related topics.
