Four books:

- Introductory Statistics with R by Peter Daalgard
- Modern Applied Statistics with S by Venables and Ripley
- Data Analysis and Graphics Using R by Maindonald and Braun
another very useful introductory book is
- Statistics, an Introduction using R by Crawley

You may also want to track down a hard copy of the R manuals.  It comes free 
along with R, but the pdf is almost 1400 pages long, so it can be worthwhile 
having someone else do the printing and binding.
