The following is a list of books and other resources that you might find helpful. I have some of these in my office, in case you want to borrow them.

I will not follow a particular textbook. Our main sources for the course are:
o M. Aguiar and S. Mahajan. Monoidal functors, species, and Hopf algebras.
o S. Montgomery. Hopf algebras and their actions on rings.
o M. Sweedler. Hopf algebras

A great way to learn about recent developments and find open problems is to visit the math arXiv, where many researchers post their papers before they are officially published (and keep them there afterwards). You can search for any keywords that interest you.

A (necessarily incomplete) list of related books:
o E. Abe. Hopf algebras
o M. Aguiar and S. Mahajan. Coxeter groups and Hopf algebras.
o A. Balachandran, S. Jo, G. Marmo. Group theory and Hopf algebras: lectures for physicists.
o S. Chase and M. Sweedler. Hopf algebras and Galois theory.
o A. Zelevinsky. Representations of finite classical groups. A Hopf algebra approach.

An even more incomplete list of interesting papers:
