I did some searching but couldn't find any threads on this.

Been a ham 2 years.  looking at 6 months of MN winter starting today (we had a blizzard yesterday) so a new project is in order

Would like to get an SDR started up just cuz it's interesting and also it'll provide a panadapter function.

So ... what books for the rookie?  something like "SDR for Dummies" would be perfect.

(rigs are TS-590s and IC-735)

thx for advice

Just get one and play around with it.
Most info is on the web, things change so fast a book would not do.
Just pick up something in your price range, new or used, then look for info on that radio.
The flex 1500 is a good start, there are receiver only radios and kits, the Anan radios are good and easy to set up, the Peabury V2 was a very nice working kit (2 watt transmitter) that had a very good receiver.

Glad to hear of your  SDR interest.  I have been an SDR nut for a while, and I hope you have as much fun as I have.  Check out my QRZ page for a little thing I wrote.  Look at the Wikipedia SDR list and Omnia SDR.  There's a lot more  -  just do some googling.
