I always quote Michael Barnes and Anthony Faulkes - there are three volumes a Grammar a Glossary and a Reader too - which is especially good - called the NEW introduction to Old Norse
They are to what passes with me for a mind very much more user friendly than is Gordon.
The Dictionary by Zoega I would say is very necessary - I think you can find Zoega on line as a reference - do you Google - then Google for Zoega  and see if it turns up
Later on there are many more books to recommend but for more advanced work
