I have been learning scheme lately, and I think it is great. I love the idea of building the language to suit the problem, rather than reducing the problem to suit the language. I was wondering if anyone could recommend me some scheme books; not just ones that teach you the language, but ones that teach thinking in scheme/lisp; ie approaching problems not the C/C++/Java way (my current background) but in a more schemish way. Any suggestions appreciated! edit: (online resources also welcome)

On Lisp by Paul Graham is about Lisp and the using of macros to modify build new languages "on lisp". A big part of the book is about the uses of Scheme continuations and how to simulate them in Lisp.
