Try some of the clasics like Adams' trilogy: "The Camera", "The Negative", and "The Print". Read them to understand the problems, not the solutions. As an example, Adams talks about using the shifts and lifts of a view camera to deal with perspective corrections - that is done by software with most digital cameras. The problem is the same, but the solution is different.

Those books also contain some of the best photos ever made. Worth looking at for those.

Don't restrict yourself to books on digital photography. Issues lik f/stops, exposure, shutter speed, shake, .... are the same with digital as with chemical photography.
