Reccomend some good reading?

I have taken the plunge to DSLR with a K10D purchased here with some Samsung lenses and a few Pentax lenses I have from a K1000 I recently sold. Can you folks recommend some good books for a newbie to DSLR? (I have a few point and shoot digitals)

Welcome to the forum.
The Magic Lantern Guide for the K10D is like a more in depth manual and very helpful (I found it so anyway). That's just speaking form experience, there is another one called the K10D book by Yvonne Bourque.
Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson is one of those books that many consider a must have.

Scott Kelbys Digital Photography books Vol 1-3 are great.

I have to agree on this one. It has helped improve my understanding tremendously.
