I like
The Encyclopedia of Aquarium Plants by Peter Hiscock The Encyclopedia of Aquarium Plants by Peter Hiscock
, and recommend that anyone who keeps a planted tank (esp. non co2) read
Ecology of the Planted Aquarium by Diana Walstad. Ecology of the Planted Aquarium by Diana Walstad.

I've collected a few others, but those two are the best I've got so far. Subbing for more reccos!

I seconod Chesherca's two books. The Hiscock is very good as a general reference; there is a lot of basic water chemistry as well as plant-related material. The Walstad gets quite technical and aside from the microbiological issues promotes soil substrates so it is not as comprehensive with respect to running a basic planted tank.
