I've Always Wanted To Play The Piano
I've Always Wanted To Play The Piano by Jo Ann Butler is a good book. Butler is an experienced pianist and teacher, and has a unique way of sharing her techniques with you.
The book consists largely of reading a melody line for the right hand, and playing an octave and chord pattern with your left. While not written with the intention of playing out of a hymnal, some hints are given at the end of the book to help you if that is the direction you want to go. This book may be temporarily out of print.
