I'm a casual lifter right now. One book that both covers weight lifting technique (useful exercises, # of reps, frequency, etc.) along with diet (protein, carbs, etc.) would be great. I'd like to add 10-15 pounds.
the forum is all you need.
Read through the diet/nutrition forum, bb/fitness *stickies*

Any of my posts in the training or diet forums.
If you're looking for a good book on training try "Supertraining" by Mel Siff. More strength related, however still a terrific read. I need to get my hands on my own copy, I read part of it at the library.
"I added some db curls with the pink weights for a bit of a burn." - Rookiebldr
"im assuming the holy (big) 3 are: curls, bench, legs?" - Saggas
"had a huge ass burn on my triceps while I was doing those kickbacks, so they'll likely be staying with my exercise program." - Zearoth
"most of my burned calories coming from something called Basal. Wtf does a leaf have to do with any of it?" - Votorx
"We have a lot of people like that on our campus, all hippies and things, that go around preaching against corporations, jocks, preps, accountants, and anyone else that feels the need to shower more than occasionally." - Shankerr
"Damn man why are some women just so demonic and evil.. its like you wanna get a stake and mallet and an erection at the same time." - WBBIRL
"Supertraining" is a great book, but it's not an easy read and I don't think it even touches diet, does it?
There are a lot of decent books out there that discuss exercise technique and the basics of diet. "Getting Stronger" by Bill Pearl is a classic - some of the info may be dated now and I haven't read it in years, but you couldn't go wrong with it.
I enjoyed 'the Testosterone Advantage Plan' by Lou Schuller. Its all about diet and weight lifting for Men. Excellent read.

Starting Strength by Lon Kilgore and Mark Rippetoe are both great books.
