Wheelock's Latin This classic Latin textbook is used in a multitude of college and university Latin courses. It's authoritative--I use it often for it's excellent grammatical explanations. If you use it for self-study, heed my warning: it moves fast!

38 Latin Stories Designed to Accompany Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin This popular book contains Latin stories that you can read to compliment your study of Wheelock's Latin grammar book. Each story is designed to accompany a given chapter in Wheelocks.
Lingua Latina by Hans Ortberg This book uses the "natural" method. No rules to learn, no paradigms, just a few pictures to show you what the words mean. It's a story about a Roman family. As you go through the story you meet each member of the family and learn about their trials and tribulations (like the slave who runs away or when the son falls out of a tree and gets hurt). I highly recommend this book for supplementary reading (actually, there is a whole series of them) after completing Getting Started with Latin.
Minimus Pupil's Book: Starting out in Latin by Barbara Bell This is one of the most popular Latin materials for young children. It's a richly illustrated storybook in which all the characters speak Latin, including the cleverly-named main character, Minimus. The humor here is that the Latin word for "mouse" is mus.
The Bantam New College Latin & English Dictionary by John Traupman My all-time favorite Latin dictionary. If I were going to be stuck on a desert island and could only take one Latin dictionary with me...uh, well, you get the idea.
Cassell's Latin Dictionary This is my second-favorite dictionary (after the Bantam dictionary by Traupman). I use it when I need a little more detail about a Latin word. It also has some examples of how the word is used by Roman authors.
Latin-English Dictionary by William Smith This Latin dictionary, by 19th century scholar William Smith, is the granddaddy of them all! A treasure trove of information, this dictionary is very large (in two volumes) and contains even the most obscure words. It's very valuable for translating texts of any kind. It costs a few bucks, but it's worth the money.
The Latin-Centered Curriculum In this book, author Andrew Campbell emphasizes the educational importance of Latin. He advocates making the study of Latin the centerpiece of one's education.
A Primer of Ecclesiastical Latin This book teaches Latin grammar in such a way as to prepare you to read ecclesiastical Latin (church Latin). Our English word ecclesiastical comes from the Geek word ekklesia which means assembly and over time just came to mean church. So ecclesiastical just means church-related. This book would be a good one to use after Getting Started with Latin if you would like to eventually read the church fathers, the Latin Vulgate, or other Christian Latin.

An Introduction to Vulgar Latin "Vulgar Latin" does not mean saying something dirty in Latin! It means colloquial Latin - the Latin spoken by the common man.
In The Beginning: Bibles Before The Year 1000 This wonderful book documents many of the most important Bible manuscripts. Complete descriptions and high-resolution photos, too. It's from the museum exhibit of the same name.
Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin This dictionary is excellent for liturgical Latin. It really picks up where others leave off.
