Looking for Atlantic fish ID books

I will be diving from the N. Carolina
coast up to Cape Cod this summer and have been looking for some good
reference material to help me identify the fish that I see while
diving these colder waters.

I have Humann and DeLoach's Reef Set
for Florida Caribbean Bahamas, and have been looking for something
similar that covers the West-central Atlantic region in detail.

NC Aquarium

I have the same challange when I dive the NC wrecks, so I take a few hours out of my dive schedule and go visit one of the 3 excellent NC aquariums. There is one near Wilmington,  Morehead City and on Roanoke Island.

Is it normal to think about diving...all the time?
