I have orgainzed the list as beginning books, which are recommended if either for ease of entry into the material, or if you have little experience and are feeling overwhelmed; intermediate, which we will get to down the road, and which might help you deepen your knowledge; and advanced, which I've selected to be worth the money, but are certainly optional.
