Learn Python: One of the most important programming languages in the 21st century and the fastest growing. This following book is a classic and is highly recommended by many python teachers. A little pricey, but well worth the read.
Learn Ruby: The programming language used in ruby on rails (doh) is one of the easier languages to learn. There is a great book by Chris Pine that just costs only a few bucks. It's a good place to learning ruby fundamentals.
