Where to start?

Hello,

I've looked into the basics of Baha'i and read a few introductory websites. I really want to get more into the scriptures and Baha'i thought. Where should I begin?

Also I have a quick theological question. "Divine manifestations" I heard described as people who are "perfect mirrors" of the all-transcendent God. So they are not incarnations then? By incarnation I mean in the Christian or Hindu sense where the Godhead becomes incarnate man.
As a mystic I like the idea of mirror since it is by our faithful practice that empty and purify ourselves to better reflect divine light. Is this what the idea is getting at?

Shalom,
-MM
