There are many, many beading books out there. A lot depends on the type of beading you want to do. One good place to start is to go to a local bead store and see what beginner books they have. They can also help you find something that adresses the particular type you are interested in.
It would also be a good to get a beading magazine, such as Beadwork. There are always some beginner projects in there. Bead & Button magazine is great, but some of there projects are a bit more advanced. But Bead & Button also has a series of small pamplets for beginners: B&B Easy Woven Bracelets, B&B Elegant Earrings, B&B Fiber and Beads, B&B Bead & Wire Jewelry Easy Does it Series, B&B Beaded Pictures. These were all listed on the Shipwreck BEads site under magazines. http://www.shipwreckbeads.com/results/?query_id=8c935035b0cde8f3c3de85d85d38ee91
