+1 to "Understanding exposure." Beyond that, it does depend on what sort of pictures you want to learn how to take. For example, if you're into nature/landscapes, I highly recommend any of John Shaw's books.

Another example would be to study the masters. I shoot a lot of black and white so my bookshelf, in addition to the "how-to" guides mentioned above, is filled with collections of coffee-table-style books featuring the work of folks like Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

One more recommendation on a Web site is the online community www.nikonians.org. Excellent place to learn technique, receive critiques, and ask technical questions specific to your gear.

Hope that helps!
