There are plenty of aviation books, and the FAA provides a lot of content on its site. Here are some resources pilots have praised:

$14: Stick and Rudder: An Explanation of the Art of Flying, by Wolfgang Langewiesche --
$25: The Student Pilot's Flight Manual, by William Kershner --
$0: See How It Flies, by John S. Denker --
$45: Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (AOPA) to keep up with flying news and discount programs, among other things.
