I'm considering learning to play the piano by reading resources instead of taking up piano lessons. It would allow me to just a buy the piano and learn it by myself. What good books or other resources would you recommend?

I would recommend faber piano adventures book. they have explained it a good way so that even a naive user would pick it. important is consistency. You must practice it, with book or with lessons. Also there are multiple aspects of playing piano like being able to play any tune/ playing by ears/ sight reading/ hand independence. One thing is for sure that it takes years and years of dedicated practice to be able to play piano decently.
