It is always exciting to hear that pre-service teachers are tuned in to reading workshop. I truly believe it is the best way to teach reading, and I wish I would have been doing it since the beginning of my career!
In terms of getting books to use for guided reading, you may find that the district you eventually work in already has a literacy library in which sets of guided reading books at different levels are kept. That is the case at our school.
However, Scholastic does sell sets of great guided reading books. They are all leveled using the Fountas and Pinnell guided reading levels. Here is a link to all of the guided reading materials on the Scholastic website: http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/guidedreading/
