One book I like which offers a very careful introduction to and motivation of modules and then applies the theory to linear transformations is Herstein, Topics in Algebra, Second Ed., Wiley, 1975.

Nice book but not much on modules which is unfortunate. But the other stuff about groups and rings are very nice. I like the font as well.

Apparently there is another book by him called 'Topics in ring theory'. That might have more on modules.

It seemed a bit dense in every sense of the word. Maybe it might work better had I printed them out.
