I have this game coming in the mail, and I like the concept of the drow mythos. I've never read a DnD book though, and I'd like some suggestions as to what I should read to get in the theme of this game. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

I suggest starting with The Dark Elf trilogy.
The first book, Homeland, will give you a good feel of the Drow society.

The Legend of Drizzt series by RA Salvatore is the definitive series. You don't really get into the nitty-gritty of Drow politics and the underdark until ~Book 7 though.

The first book in the series "Homeland" was great. I didn't care for the rest of the series though. but at least read the first one.

The War of the Spider Queen series may be good too.
