Can someone recommend a couple of good books on photography, targeted at beginner but with advanced techniques as well. Also can most of the concepts that are talked about in books about film cameras be applied to digital photography?

Take a look at this thread:

and yes, pretty much photography has evolved around the techniques. The techniques really haven't changed. The only thing that really has changed is how the image is developed. If you use a film camera, get a book about how to process film in a lab, if you shoot digial get a book about processing the image in photoshop or whatever software you use.

You should read classic photo books with the concept that "digital photography" refers to a new type of film. Other than the addition of the "computer logic", cameras and lenses haven't changed and aren't used any differently, regardless of whether the "film" you are using is chemical B&W, chemical color, or the digital versions of either.

Yes, one of the best books on exposure is called 'Understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson. :)
