Ah, yes the PIC! Very easy to learn, while these Microcontrollers are actually quite powerful (as in "being suitable for a broad range of applications", not as in a "number crunching" sort of way)! You should be able to pick up a dev board with tools and documentation for around 50$. If you'd rather go for an ARM, get yourself one of those flashy, new Raspberry Pi devices! A single board computer for 40$? Not easy to beat, and these things are so cool to play with!

Sorry for still not giving you a suitable book to read. I learned x86 assembler with a rather old, german book "Das Assembler-Buch" by Trutz Eyke Podschun, and I'm not aware of an english translation. I'm even not sure if I can recommend it, since it was in fact difficult to read: it relied heavily on reading and understanding the numerous code examples. Besides, as blewisjr already stated, the x86 is notoriously complicated...
