I learned to spindle spin from online sources mainly. I did check out some books thru my library tho too. Everyone learns on a different curve, it took me 7 months before I was suspended spindling, but when it 'clicked' I had just received a beautiful balanced spindle. Now my new love is supported spindling with Russian spindles
Check out Abby Franquemonts videos on Youtube, she's like a big spinning guru, her videos are super informative, I find myself still watching them on occassion. If you get a chance, check out her book Respect the Spindle, there's also The Visual Spinner, for wheels and spindles.
(Sorry I'm using spindles as my background info, you didn't mention whether you were interested in spindles or wheels)
I second the lovely spinning groups on Ravelry, there are many for both wheels and spindles and the people there are very nice and pass on info for any question.
