Here are three books I found impactful in regard to how I design courses and really understanding some basics of the field.

Design for How People Learn - Julie Dirksen

The Accidental Instructional Designer - Cammy Bean

Leaving ADDIE for SAM - Richard Sites & Angel Green


They are all pretty straight forward and focused on the application aspects.

When I was new to instructional design there were a couple of really good books I read. There are a lot of suggestions for books on the forum here.  I also found lots of useful resources online. Kineo has a lot of good guides and Learning Solutions Magazine has a big library of in-depth articles. There are many other blogs/websites that you might find helpful.
