First off let me suggest picking "The Royal Road To Card Magic". This is a great book for beginners and a great reference for the advanced. Many of your basic moves are going to be overhand shuffle, riffle shuffle, double lifts, hindu shuffle, and glides. All these and more can be found in this great book. Check out http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=573 This is one book that every card worker should own. Plus a great price you just can't wrong.

Royal Road is the best book that can be recommended, (like Adam2k said) but another good set of books is Card College. A little pricey but worth it....

I would say the very first sleight to work on is the table or in the hands riffle shuffle. This is no joke. I have seen a few starters that can do some card tricks, but can't shuffle a deck. So, I would say to make sure you can shuffle the cards.
