Good .NET book suggestions?

My project has just decided to officially adopt .NET as its next generation primary architecture and offered to invest in whatever training materials we need.  Does anyone here have any good .NET book suggestions?

We currently are ASP / VBScript / JavaScript / IIS developers, with Oracle database experience.  Our primary requirements are hosting for Web Services and an open architecture for third-party developers to contribute applications and other types of easily installed libraries / modules.  We will have a significant focus on security.

I found _Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming_ by Jeffrey Richter to be an excellent all around introduction to .NET.  It is done with C#.  I'd start with something like that and then move on to more domain specific books.
