    Hello. Well, the main bass theory book I work out of (I use this at my lessons) is Mel Bay's "Deluxe Jazz & Rock Bass Method" by Vincent Bredice. If you are wanting to learn site-reading I'd recommend Mel Bay's "Note Reading Studies For Bass" by Arnold Evans. Both books go from beginner to advanced. :)
