Starting a strength training routine

I've been doing Body Pump on a regular basis but I think I want to take it to the next level and start doing a strength training routine on my own as well outside of the class atmosphere.  Body Pump is great but because of the high reps, you don't really ever lift heavy and I think a lifting routine will be interesting and help me get toned and look more tight.  From my googling and quick reading, most people recommend Starting Strength or The New Rules of Lifting for Women for newbies.  I am going to try getting them for my ipad and giving it a go.  Wish me luck...
