I would suggest you to read the book "Wireless Java" by Jonathan from APress... Since it will bring you to the entry level of J2ME, I think it will suit you... As for me, I started with that book and now I will go to Michael Yuan's Enterprise J2ME book as an intermediate book...
I hope I can win one from the promotion... :roll:

I am always here. I am in charge of this forum.

Starting from a J2SE background, J2ME should be pretty easy to learn. It is just another set of APIs. Jonathan's book is excellent in API coverage and examples. But if you want to develop sophisticated end-to-end applications, there are a lot of design issues you need to consider on mobile devices and wireless networks -- tha is where my book comes in. It talks about architecture, design and specialized toolkits for mobile development.
For starters, check out Sun's J2ME Faq:
