Suggested Reading

I got myself into programming late in the summer and have dabbled in
python for the most part in that time, recently beginning work on a
music player. In January, I start my minor in Information
Technology. I'd like to get ahead a bit, however, and over the break
would like to do some reading. I seek your recommendations in the
field of database design basics and network programming, with a bias
towards texts which specifically address Python. By network
programming, I mean fundamental understanding of sockets, TCP/UDP,
right up to HTTP serving, etc. Thanks ahead of time.

Steve Holden's Python Web Programming might be what you are looking for.
It covers all the topics needed to deal with sockets, databases, up to
building complete web apps. One of my books I'd never give away.
