In addition to the other books, I also recommend Simply Scheme, 
particularly as a first book. I am working through this book now, and 
wish I had started with it, because it is very clear at explaining some 
things that took much longer to sink in while studying other books. 
Simply Scheme is available as an online library book through netlibrary 
(which many public libraries offer to cardholders).
