Which books would be best to start with in the journey of learning tarot, and in what order?

Hello! Lately I have been following this subreddit and am very interested about getting into the world of tarot, however I'm rather disorganized and clueless about exactly how to start. I've got my deck, (well three in fact, but I believe it's best to start learning with the classic RWT) and based on some recommendations and reviews I have been hoarding up on books, really hoarding up. I actually enjoy reading books in my free time, so even though these are a different type of books, I always see a book as a good investment. The thing is, I've got a ton of books and resources now and no idea where to start. I've got, in no particular order:

– The Ultimate Guide to Tarot by Dean Liz

– Every Day Tarot by Gail Fairfield

– The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot—EVER! by Dusty White

– Holistic Tarot by Benebell Wen

– Around the Tarot in 78 Days by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin

– The ultimate guide to the Rider Waite Tarot by Johannes_Fiebig and Evelin Bürger

– Mary Greer's 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card

– The Tarot Revealed by Paul Fenton-Smith

– Tarot – No Questions Asked by Theresa Reed

– Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cynova

– and of course I've got the 78 Degrees of Wisdom from the tarot legend Rachel Pollack, as well as Tarot Wisdom which I've been told is better to start with, before moving on to 78 Degrees

– There is also the Joan Bunning website. I did not buy her book because I was told it was exactly the same as the website which I can access for free, but I believe that's a very good resource as well

So, if you are familiar with these books, which I'm sure you are, if not with all then with most of them (at least I hope so, and that I have not been misguided in my selection this far), which would be the best to start with and how should I proceed from there? Or would it be better to read them in parallel, consulting a couple of books at the same time? It just seems a little confusing that way. Is there anything I am missing, which is not covered by these books but you consider to be important/helpful? If so, what other resources do you recommend?

I am aware this is mostly a beginner collection but that's where I am at right now, an absolute beginner. In the future I may move on to more advanced stuff and will probably ask for your help again. Also, I need to make it clear that I do not intend to turn this into a profession or any form of monetization. I want to learn simply for myself and maybe for my close circle of friends and family, but mainly just to get guidance for myself and a deeper understanding of myself.

Thank you very much in advance for any comment/suggestion!
