Sounds like a good start, those books should get you a good understanding of the basics. I recommend
the books I mentioned once you have read (and more or less understand) the concepts covered in an
introductory C book or tutorial. Also, time spent on understanding pointers and callbacks now (or in the
near future) will pay off huge in the long run.
