Google is your friend.

There are many schools of Hinduism. If English is your only language then you have to find one that has a good translator because most of the concepts and terminology are in Sanskrit. And often much is lost in translation.
If you are interested in the Vedas and the Vedantist scholarship based on the Vedantic tradition and wish to be a Harikrish of sorts. I could make some suggestions.
If you have been influenced by my scholarship and example, i will be more motivated to respond.
We have a Dattaswami on DDO. You can read some of our exchanges to familiarize yourself with the two different schools of thought.

Dattaswami and Harikrish on Jesus and reincarnation.

I am glad to see you are interested in Hinduism.

I found that a great place to start was here:

However, when you want to look at primary sources I would recommend starting with the Bhagavad Gita. I personally enjoyed the Eknath Easwaran translation and commentary, but I cannot say how well accepted it is among Hindus. He has also translated and commentated the Upanishads. Best of luck.
"If a man does not put himself in the attitude of a sinner, his prayer will not be heard before God." A brother asked him, "what is a sinful soul?" And St. Abba Moses replied, "Everyone who bears his own sins, and does not consider those of his companion."
