I know it can be daunting to noobs like us to just have advice to read books but then no idea which to pick. Some that I've picked are just too long winded, technical or simpler so boringly presented they're probably no longer on any bookshelf besides in the library.
So I'll just recommend a few books which I feel is surely worth-reading for noobs like us. Heres x5 to start the ball rolling..
Feel free to add on to this list, best if they're available in the public library.
"The moment it clicks"
"Hot shoe Diaries" (*when u start using flash)
"Understanding Shutter Speed"
"Learning to See Creatively"
