where are you located? or what sort of climate?

I really love the book Farming The Woods but it might not be the best for you depending on location. I like what it says about fungi a lot though and ducks!

Gaia's Garden and The Encyclopedia of Country Living are both good choices for just getting started. The encyclopedia isn't permaculture based, but if you read that first then gaia's garden it will give you a pretty good foundation. After that I would recommend The Permaculture Handbook. From those three you can look towards picking up more specialized books as you work on specific projects.

For urban/suburban permaculture, Peter Bane's Permaculture Handbook is a very good read. Gaia's Garden is really good, informative, accessible, it is really helpful, in my view. On the fungi front, anything Paul Stametz has published. Mycelium Running is his most recent, but he has a handbook on growing edible and medicinal mushrooms and Paul is a flatout visionary.

Mark Shepard's good for larger scale operations, but if your focus is urban Mark's stuff might be a lower priority for you.
