After you finish with the Dave Thomas book, you should read these two excellent books to continue your Ruby learnings:

http://www.amazon.com/Well-Grounded-Rubyist-David-Black/dp/1933988657
http://www.amazon.com/Metaprogramming-Ruby-Facets-Paolo-Perrotta/dp/1934356476/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1278807589&sr=1-1

And to continue your Rails learnings it's really up to what you need to do for your project, but I found this book had lots of gems (well... quite literally lol), though I think it's getting a bit dated in some parts.
http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Rails-Recipes-Mike-Clark/dp/0978739221/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1278807624&sr=1-2

Anything from Pragmatic Programmers is gold.

Suyahsh,

There are many, many excellent resources for learning rails. I would start with Agile Web Development in Rails by David Thomas. If you want to learn Rails 3, start with Fourth Edition. If you want to learn Rails 2.x, start with the Third Edition. If you haven't started a project, then go with Rails 3 since the release candidate should be out later this summer.

Definitely check out railscasts.com by Ryan Bates.

At the next meetup, ask members how they learned rails, which blogs to follow, and which websites they use.
