Is there a "bible" for buddhist?
Is there a way to be Christian but follow a Buddhist life style in any way?

This is another book I like. It's a book of some parallel sayings of both Jesus and the Buddha with a brief introduction.

I do believe you can be a Christian and a Buddhist; I think some of the best books have already been suggested to you, Living Buddha, Living Christ and The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching by Thich Nhat Hanh.
You can read information on BuddhaNet as well, they have "Buddhism in a nutshell" sections and other things too.
I personally am a Taoist, but I like Zen Buddhism (which is what Thich Nhat Hanh mostly teaches) it is very similar to Taoism.
Good luck on your journey :-)

Feel free to come join our group Buddhist Mamas. The group hasn't been too active lately but maybe having a new member would help kick start things a bit :) I'm just starting to learn about Buddhism myself and the group is a good place to get advice on books to read, websites to check out, etc. Personally, Buddhism has been such a positive influence on my life already so I'm really excited for you. I'm still new to all of this but you are welcome to message me or add me if you would like :)
