Good book reccomendations?

Hello all. I hope it's appropriate to post this question here.

I'm relatively new to photography as a hobby (as distinct from casual point and click), and am enjoying it a lot so far, appreciating the way it makes me see the visual word differently and wanting increasingly to work at composing and creating (and possibly sharing) images which capture aspects of it. Learning can of course be a lifelong journey, and formal learning from experts can be quicker than learning purely from one's own mistakes. I attended a 1 day course on the basics (Jessops "Level 2") which is good but a rather expensive way to learn. I've been reading quite a bit online, as well as learning from my own mistakes of course. And learning about my equipment. But I also like learning from books.

So - what books might you recommend to teach a variety of topics at a basic or not quite basic level? I know almost nothing about post processing, so a book which included that would be good, but I'm also interested in composition, natural and artificial lighting, perhaps more than the basics on exposure, focus, DoF etc.

Anyone like to recommend their top book choices? :-)
