Hello new to bikes looking for info recommendations

Hi use to be into bikes a couple of years ago but let the passion kind of fade away. Want to get back into it. Mainly getting a vintage bike and fixing/upgrading it. Does any one have any recommendations on reading? Mainly about hardware and general info on components and what does what. Thanks.
