Seeking for literary wisdom

This is a duplicate post, but anyway:
I am trying to build a reading list for set theory and logic so that I can carry on a directed reading project in the fall. Any suggestions?

Re: Seeking for literary wisdom

It's a bit old, but Kamke's Set Theory is pretty good, and the notation isn't too old... Definitely find a more recent reference to make sure your notation is up to date. I can't think of one right now.

Enderton's A Mathematical Introduction to Logic is quite good as an introduction.

Try "Naive Set Theory" by Paul Halmos - a very nice introduction to axiomatic set theory.
