Main Question or Discussion Point

I am 3rd year physics student (actually I have just finished it). I have good knowledge on basics of quantum mechanics: I had 1 semester of Introduction to Quantum Physics and then 2 semesters of Quantum Physics. Our literature were Griffiths (Introduction to Quantum Mechanics) and ''Gennaro Auletta: Quantum Mechanics'' (this book is more advanced than Griffiths, I think it's something like Shankar) (this book also has topics on quantum optics and introduction to quantum information, we didn't cover quantum information).

I would like to learn something about quantum information and quantum computing. Which book would be good for me if we take into account my knowledge?

The following is a book that's an introduction to QT from a quantum-information perspective, not per se a specialized book on quantum information, but maybe it's of some value for you. I liked it as a good didactical approach to introduce my students to quantum mechanics to beginners (with polarization states of photons as a simple 2D Hilbert space problem):
