The Designer's Guide to VHDL is a very good book and I can highly 
recommend it (I have the 2nd edition). I think it's more of a reference 
book than a teaching guide, but very well written and with good examples.

Keep in mind that it covers VHDL as a language, and there are a lot of 
things you can do in the language which won't work for synthesis (VHDL was 
designed for simulation after all).

It's still possible to get 5V tolerant CPLDs, e.g. the Xilinx 9500LX 
series, but not so for FPGAs (or they will be old designs and very 
expensive). So as Ruud mentions, logic level shifters are unavoidable.
