Your best bet is to get or use a database program, and study games.
Make smaller databases, and keep the openings you play in them.
Locate a few hundred kings gambit for example, with your pet lines. Then study similar openings like Vienna game, etc. Study the entire games, not just the openings. This will give you a keen understanding of your lines, and learn tactics as well.
For books, most game collections are ok. If you find your self getting sleepy, go back and look for words you dont fully understand and look them up in a dictionary. That will help a lot.
For under 1800+ i recomend Mednis, Sierawan, and of course Silman
