I have 'Buddhism Plain and Simple' by Steve Hagen, but I think this is Zen... and I also have 'Start where you are' by Pema Chodron, but she is not Theravada either. I'm sure these books have great things to offer, but being a beginner I'm not sure if they will be benificial to me wanting to learn Theravada. ( or am I wrong ? )

Available as ebook here: http://www.urbandharma.org/pdf/wordofbuddha.pdf
But it also exists in hardcopy (I have a much different print but it works)
