Click here.

This is a good place to start, read the first chapter titled "The Thing That Really Matters" yes these are mostly old books on photography, but none the less full of photographic wisdom.

Enjoy!

The site also contains video (such as "The Photographer" by Edward Weston) and audio texts and a whole load of other interesting stuff.

It's great that there are things which are free, but a link to nearly 2,000 articles chosen just for their inclusion of the word "photography" (but not photo, picture, image, camera....) in the title seems a bit general. Far better than 2,000 would be a list of the 20 books that YOU find really worthwhile to read.

(this is probably a good time to point out that I haven't read enough about photos yet to put together my own top-20 book list)

You can never have enough books on photography, so you will need to make plenty of room for at least a couple of hundred books or so over the coming years, but my tip for a good place to start and a damn good read, would be - 'Galen Rowell's Inner Game of Outdoor Photography'.

Galen may be dead but that is a fantastic read.
I thoroughly endorse this book - the fact that some of the technical information contained therein details information specific to film changes nought.

Thanks for the recommendation Dave and Tony. I have placed an order for a (used) copy of his book, and am looking forward to reading it.
