First Lathe-Need Advice

Jonathan Patrick- Hernando, Mississippi
>I just ordered my first lathe. It is only a Jet mini lathe but a lathe none the less. LOML is giving it to me for our anniversary. I'm dumb as a rock when it comes to lathes and turning so I come to the "experts". Which tools are the basics for getting started? I just want to get the feel of it before I jump in all the way. Also, what books or tapes would be helpfull? TIA.
