A great, easy-reading reference text for aircraft design in general is
available as part of the AIAA Education Series.  It is titled "Aircraft
Design: A Conceptual Approach", by Raymer.  I do not have it right here
(it's at work), but I can get the ISBN number, etc, if you wish.  Purchase
value was about $90 CDN before taxes <ouch!>.  This text could give you a
good fundamental grasp of various aspects in wing design.  It may not be as
good as a dedicated text in wing design/aerodynamics, but it is still
worth checking out.
