well, since no one has mentioned it yet:
A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel

excellent advice for most investors:
The Little Book of Common Sense Investing: The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns is the latest from John C. Bogle (founder of The Vanguard Group). Any of his earlier books are also worth reading.

a bit more involved:
The Nature of Risk: Stock Market Survival & The Meaning of Life by Justin Mamis

reference resource:
The Wall Street Journal Guide to Understanding Money & Investing is a concise and easy to reference guide/glossary. The earlier recomendation of Investopia is good, but sometimes you don't know what to look up. This allows you to just flip pages and learn about all aspects of the markets quickly.

My wife bought this last one, and it's actually not bad for general money and very basic investment guidance, especially for those just getting their first job:
The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke by Suze Orman.

Just wanted to say thanks for suggesting the books. I can't wait to start reading them.

Since I have been giving these out to those who ask anyways, Weldon's money and metal moniter as well as John Mauldin's weekly newsletter are good recources to give you a broad macroeconomic perspective of what's going on world wide. I've been reading them for years and honestly don't remember where I originally found them, just google each one and enter your email-the recources above are 100% free.

How to think like Benjamin Graham, and invest like Warren Buffet.


Reminiscences of a stock operator.


Good quotes.

Price is what you pay, Value is what you get.

Get greedy when others are fearful.
