There are literally thousands of Masonic books about Freemasonry's different facets. However, I feel that the books, below, will give you an excellent foundation to begin your Masonic reading journey.
If you are a brand new Entered Apprentice, I suggest all 3 (short) Introduction books by Carl H. Claudy.
If you would like an overview of the facts, fictions and history of Freemasonry, I would suggest The New Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry by Dr. Albert Mackey.
The title of the book below, is The Craft and Its Symbols by Allen Roberts. It is excellent at explaining Masonic symbolism.
The book below, has a white cover which does not display very well.
The book below, A Bridge To Light is for those who wish to join the Scottish Rite.
