Em hotep MBrown! :)

Welcome to the forums!  I just went through the Beginner's Course.. I gotta say, it's really worth the time to do it :)  I learned a whole lot, and it wasn't even the tip of the iceburg! :)  It's presented very well and there are a lot of resources and sources of the information that's provided, and you get to learn with other people :)   And as A'aqytsekhmet said, it's free and fun! :) 

If you want to get started on a book, I personally highly recommend getting The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook (Not because it's written by the Kemetic Orthodox Nisut :) )  because it's got a lot of detail and practical knowledge as well as historical.  :)    Also with this link, there is a whole list of recommended reading :)

Hotep and welcome!

By far my favorite books are Red Land, Black Land by Barbara Mertz and Concepts of God in Ancient Egypt: The One and the Many by Erik Hornung. The first is a great primer on all things Egypt. The second is a far more in-depth exploration of Egyptian theology, which might be too heavy for someone just starting out, but it's the book that's been most influential on me personally.

I also recommend books by Richard Wilkinson.
