I have been reading "Mono: a developer's notebook" to start off my first 
experience with mono and GUI programmings in general. :)

I also bought "Professional C#: 3rd edition" to help with C# grammar problems.

So far, they had been helpful. :) But I still need to use IRC: #mono 
irc.gnome.org and this list sometimes to get those really-hard-to-find infos.
