I'm brand new at this. I'd like to hit the ground running, and I think I can do that with a few well-timed books. Please indicate your favorites-- the ones that really enlightened you and inspired/created your method!
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

You might want to consider the merits of walking first.
Generally speaking books aren't that great at explaining how to trade. Mostly because trading is a living, moving thing and books are static.
Videos and live trading demo's are a better medium but there's so much fake stuff out there.
If I had to pick books it would be:
1- Markets in Profile by Jim Dalton
2 - One good trade by Mike Bellafiore
3 - Golf is not a Game of Perfect by Bob Rotella
4 - No BS Day Trading by John Grady
5 - The Hour Between Dog and Wolf: How Risk Taking Transforms Us, Body and Mind - John Coates
You may notice that one of those is not a trading book, yet it is still the best one in my opinion.
