I have always been interested in martial arts and everything that goes along with it. I would like to learn about it, the moves, the history... everything. Know any books or other sources that can quench my thirst for this type of knowledge?

Hurry to the nearest karate club, duh.
Run into a biker bar and whack someone with a pool stick and you will get an intensive study session.
Join the Marines. Not the Army. As a soldier I can tell you that the Army doesn't have the same quality.
Barnes and Noble bookstore has many good books. Don't pick up anything with Ashida Kim on it.
Wikipedia is free and quick but the information is incomplete and prone to misinformation to say the very least.

Well I personally think that it's more of a hands on type of thing. You have to really get in there and try it our yourself instead of reading about it. Gracie academies are the best. The Gracies are the best grapplers ever and can teach very well.

The best advise I can give is that although books and videos are nice reminders and supplements, only real hands on instruction and intensive drilling will take you beyond the conceptual level. Find a good school with teachers you trust and practice daily. Use books and videos to keep your interest up and fresh ideas flowing.
Most importantly, make what you do a lifestyle more than a hobby.

You want to learn brazilian jiu jitsu, you have to practice brazilian jiu jitsu, the net/books/videos are great reference materials, but if you don't have a qualify instructor to teach you the basics, you won't be learning too much.
About the History and the people, I would recomend you the series of video magazines Arte Suave, it has some great interviews and you get to see the big names of the sport training and giving their history and the history of the art
