Rabbi Latowicz: ok, a good starter is "Shabbat: A Day of Eternity" by the late Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan; you can order it online at http://www.eichlers.com/Product/Books/Halachah_-_Jewish_Law/Shabbat/Sabbath-Day-of-Eternity-(P%252FB)-_05-2.html. Also "The Sabbath" by Dayan Dr. I. Grunfeld, also available online at http://www.eichlers.com/Product/Books/Halachah_-_Jewish_Law/Shabbat/Sabbath-(H%252FC)-_F266-3.html. Then there are many more advanced books dealing with the numerous Halachot; there is also a video called The Shabbat Experience. Hope that helps!

Shabbat
(pl: Shabbatot). Hebrew word meaning "rest." It is a Biblical commandment to sanctify and rest on Saturday, the seventh day of the week. This commemorates the fact that after creating the world in six days, G-d rested on the seventh.
Halachot
Laws governing the Jewish way of life.
