<span style="color:#789922;">>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?</span>

The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.



<span style="color:#789922;">>What programs do I need to get started?</span>

-Vector

Adobe Illustrator

Corel Draw

Inkskape



-Bitmap

Adobe Photoshop

Gimp



-3d

Blender

Cinema4d



<span style="color:#789922;">>Which program is the best for X?</span>

It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.
