There is nothing like a quick book which you can open and just start reading to complete it.

You need to understand the basics firmly. So, I would suggest to use J2ME: The Complete Reference as a starting book.

Be aware though that -according to its Amazon reviews- this book covers MIDP but not CDC (which is an important part of JME). Also note that the book is from 2003, so it doesn't cover the current MIDP 3.0 version (although, in fairness, that isn't used much out in the wild). That kind of reflects the fact that -IMO- JME is on a downward path, not an upward path. The only "hot" smartphone that uses JME at all is the BlackBerry, and even that needs all kinds of non-JME, BB-only APIs to do some of the advanced stuff.

So, if you want to use the Java language to develop for mobile devices, Android might be a better choice (depending on the market you're after).
