I have a few Lynda books, and her learning library is really good. I would suggest two things:

1. Get a library card
2. Go to different tutorial sites and any book that is referenced I would go out and get at your local library for $0

Working through code examples and learning the reasoning behind certain methods is important. In our world of online tutorials, and wiki’s and "get everything from the internet". There is still a place for good, old-fashioned books. You know, the kind with pages and everything… Save yourself the money and maybe start there…
