When I'm approaching a new subject, it can be difficult to search for the right books to get started. Tell us what you want to study and why, and we'll try to respond by recommending books that we think will be helpful. And if someone is wanting to study something that you know about, help them out!

Do you keep a reading journal? I find it helpful to keep a dedicated notebook to jot down notes and references while I'm reading. As far as keeping track of explicit references to earlier works, that could help. Also, if I'm reading something that's fairly well-known, I like checking out the wikipedia article because usually it will point to the roots behind it.
