I have been finding this book

"Information Retrieval Implementing and Evaluating Search Engines 
(B├╝ttcher, Clarke, Cormack)"

an excellent read as well.

Also there is the classic managing gigabytes which focuses a little more 
on some of the practical elements of it rather than theory.

Just my 2cents
