I'm glad to hear you're delving into the Pali Canon! I'd say you're off to a good start; Ven. Bodhi's anthology was the first serious one that I read. After that, I'd recommend for deeper reading going into the Digha Nikaya and Majjhima Nikaya which have English translations by Maurice Walshe and Ven. Bodhi, respectively. For less dense work (shorter passages), check out the Dhammapada, Sutta Nipata, Theragatha, Therigatha, Udana, and Itivuttaka from the Khuddaka Nikaya. Also, check out Access to Insight's page, Befriending the Suttas
. Finally, this forum has some great lists of resources; check out the stickies in each of the forums.
Really, the whole Sutta Pitaka is a fount of wisdom and you can't really go wrong no matter what you read!
When this is, that is.
From the arising of this comes the arising of that.
When this isn't, that isn't.
From the cessation of this comes the cessation of that.-SN 12.61Ex nihilo nihil fit.
