Em hotep!

Thank you! I’m certain I will as well. Does anyone here have a suggestion of books I may want to read along side the beginners course?

I’ve consumed Kemetic knowledge on my own through years of solitary practice. But I’m always up to consume even more!!

That's the great thing about the beginners class - there's a reading list as well! but to start, here's one of my favourites:

Yes, if it hasn’t changed from the time I did it (only a few years ago!), each lesson should have a recommended reading list to do with the covered topic(s)

I asked this question when I joined Beginners' Class 54. You're given a list of recommended reading when you start the course. However, I was aware that reading books takes time and often money. What should I prioritize?

What was recommended to me by more than one priest is what I would also recommend: The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook, by Rev. Dr. Tamara L. Siuda. (Yes this is the Nisut.)  I also recommend getting an electronic version as (a) you will get it immediately, and (b) it is searchable. (I got the PDF.)

I do have many of the other books too, including Karenga mentioned above. And while I was waiting for the course to start (and before I had the recommended list), I read "Red Land, Black Land: Daily Life in Ancient Egypt" by Barbara Mertz, which is a wonderfully fun, easy, and very human read.

I went ahead and purchased the digital book of the Nisut. I’m looking into to getting the book by Karenga! And I’ll grab the Mertz as well! Thank you so much!

There’s a reading list on Kemet.org, under resources. I remember Daily Life of the Egyptian Gods was one I read early on and really enjoyed. I’m re-reading Egyptian Religion now and I saw Conceptions of God in Ancient Egypt around here the other day and have been meaning to find it... that’s another good one.

For general history... years ago I also got the Ancient Egyptian course of The Great Courses CDs from the library and I enjoyed that too. If your library offers Kanopy, you can watch them there for free.
