As the Chofetz Chaim famously stated in the Mishnah Berurah, one cannot be fully Shomer Shabbos without first studying the Halachos. Since Shabbos represents such an fundamental element of Yiddishkeit and since it is our weekly lesson of Emunah in the creation of the world, it is certainly worthwhile to improve our Shabbos observance.

The first place to start is Hilchos Shabbos. Some possible books to study are:

The 39 Melochos - R' Dovid Ribiat
Shemirath Shabbath - Rabbi Yehoshua Neuwirth
