Hi Bobby,
there's a hole bunch of books and many good among these... ; )
My recommendations are:
Object-oriented Software Construction, Bertrand Meyer (one of the gurus)
Object-Oriented Design Heuristics, Arthur J. Riel
Object Solutions : Managing the Object-Oriented Project (Addison-Wesley Object Technology Series)
by Grady Booch (also one of the gurus)
Object-Oriented Modeling and Design, James Rumbaugh, u. a (another, you gess it)
Developing Software with UML: Object-Oriented Analysis and Design in Practice, Bernd Oestereich
Think, that should do for the beginning. ; )
Have fun...

There's also Craig Larman's book "Applying UML and Patterns Introduction to OOAD and the Unified Process". Peter Coad's "Java Design" is based on his Feature Driven Development (FDD) methodology but it may not be a good book for beginners.
