1. What books should I buy ?

There are several that no USENET admin with a book fetish should
be without.

From O' Reilly and Associates:

        Administering UUCP and USENET
        - widely recommended, Unix-based, might be helpful

        A Directory of Electronic Mail Addressing and Networks
        - possibly interesting if you're doing weird mail
          things, but not a uucp-specific book by any means

        From `The Waite Group'
        Unix Communications
        - obviously, Unix-based.  can't find my copy right now.

2. What other stuff should I read ?

Read USENET news, particularly some or all of the following
groups:
        comp.bbs.waffle
        comp.mail.uucp
        news.admin.misc
        news.answers
        news.newusers.questions

There is a FAQ posted to news.admin.misc, news.announce.newusers,
and news.answers called `How to become a USENET site', which
includes lots of useful information about finding your initial
connection.
