Yay! Good for you Ruchie! I think weight training is one of the BEST things people can do for their bodies. No need to be nervous about starting lifting!
I'll do a little bit of looking around for some of my favourite books and websites tonight but ones that come off the top of my head are these:
Women's Weight Training - this is a great site about weight training for women for everyone from complete beginners to powerlifters! Seriously, there's lots of great info here and it's all written in a light and humorous tone. One of my favourites.
Brother Iron Sister Steel by Dave Draper Ok this is written by former Mr. World/Universe (basically every bodybuilding title there is to win, he won it) - but it's not just for bodybuilders! There's lots of great info in here about getting started, proper nutrition, proper form (SO important), plus lots of great sample workouts from beginners to advanced. He can get a little lofty with his tone and start waxing philosophic on bodybuliding at times, but in all it's a great book.
