I have shooting digital for last 2 years but do not have good know how of digital processing. I have decided to invest into tools, and knowledge because I feel I need to learn digital processing for better results.
I have LightRoom 4.2 downloaded.
Where do I start? Which books?

Rick gave you some very good directions. I have the Martin Evening "Photoshop LR 4" book and have found it to be very useful. The book really goes in-depth and I have found it helps me to keep notes as I go through the pages. Go on-line to the free Adobe TV series - Learn LR4 and Getting Started with Adobe LR4 - and you can sort of jump start your learning process. Good luck and enjoy the new experience.
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. <><
I second the recommendation for the Martin Evening book. It covers virtually every subject in good detail.
Rick referenced the FAQ anchored at the top of the page. That has a good resource list. But don't overlook Rick's other post, also anchored at the top of the page, with suggested tips. Once you get a good handle on LR, take a look at those tips. They're very helpful.
I agree with Karen's recommendation to look at the tutorials on Adobe TV website for Lightroom. I am new to Lightroom and I find them very informative and explained simply. I think they are a great place to begin.
