"The Way of Perfection" by St Theresa of Avila
I recommend a steady diet of books that tell the stories of Saints lives, in addition to what has been listed in the previous posts.  The Saints are our role models and you can learn so much about being holy by learning of their lives.  There are good DVDs available, too.
