Recommended photo basics book

Or website? The only digital cameras I've used have been totally basic point and shoot models. When I actually knew what I was doing I was using film so I'm looking for some basic need to know info that is either new (since film) or reminders since I've forgotten everything anyway.

Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson is an excellent book for beginners and pro's alike. It is available in print or digital book.

Learn the rule of thirds. The easiest and one of the best thing to learn. The biggest mistake made is putting the main subject right smack in the middle of the picture...every time.

Since proper exposure is the key to any good photo, I would suggest a book called, Digital Exposure Handbook, by Ross Hoddinott. They sell it an Amazon for about $18. It is small and I always have it in my bag. Great resource.
