I suggest:

Assmann, J. 2001. The Search for God in Ancient Egypt. D. Lorton, transl. Ithaca: Cornell University Press.

Bonnet, H. 2001 (1952). Reallexikon der Aegyptischen Religiongeschichte. Berlin: Walter de Gruyter.

Hornung, E. 1982. Conceptions of God in Ancient Egypt: The One and the Many. J. Baines, transl. Ithaca: Cornell University Press.

Redford, D. B., Ed. 2002. The Ancient Gods Speak: A Guide to Egyptian Religion. Oxford: Oxford University Press.

Shafer, B. E., Ed. 1991. Religion in Ancient Egypt: Gods, Myths, and Personal Practice. Ithaca: Cornell University Press.

Tobin, V. A. 1989. Theological principles of Egyptian religion. American University Studies. Series 7, Theology and Religion 59. New York: Peter Lang.

All except Tobin are likely easily accessible via library or bookshops.

The Gods of Ancient Egypt by Barbara Watterson is a good one if you're looking for a concise brief introduction and summary of the gods.
