    Wink

    You can also download e-Books!
    They are easily available online.
    Note: 'easily' does NOT mean FREE.

    I find it hard to believe your local library doesn't have books on web design/development. Also, book stores.

    http://webstyleguide.com/

    That is the online version of a book. If you want the printed version, you should be able to get it from a local bookstore even if they have to order it. On the right hand side there is a link to get the international version of it.

    http://products.sitepoint.com/

    I only recommend them since they do sell pdf versions of books on the cheap at various points. They have a massive say during Christmas time. Some of their books are good. Some of their books don't cover the topic nearly enough.

    https://shop.smashingmagazine.com/

    Books from one of the best sites on web design.

    FYI, if you really want to print books, I hope you don't mean the whole thing unless you have a laser printer or high output business type of inkjet printer. If you have a lower output inkjet printer that is typical for most homes, ink is going to cost you a ton. If the book has color in it and you print it in color, you are only costing yourself more money.

    Also, this list will only get longer.

    Beginning PHP 5.3: My current pick for somebody trying to learn PHP. This pick doesn't get changed often, but I always seem to be looking for the next one to take the title.

    PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice: The next logical step once you read an intro type of book. It is more about concepts than code although there is plenty of that.

    The Smashing Book #1: Significant in helping me out in terms of topology and figuring out things like 2-3 column layouts. Chuck full of info. I need to get the others.

    Don't Make Me Think: A short goldmine of a book covering how websites should be geared for the end users versus the designer. Its mere philosophy has made me looking for ways to design better.

    Defensive Design for the Web: “Wait, what do you mean my website doesn't work?”

    I´m in a really dificult situation! I thought downloading e-books could be free, but I´ve not met them! I´ve a litlle money and I´m now living in a hostel. It ´s not quiet here. Moving is impossible, because for that I need money! That´s why I want to promote myself as a web developer, but I think now to learn in the morning hours (when it´s the most quiet here!) on-line if internet is working.

    P. s. 1 there aren´t any books of web design (this isn ´t the USA)
    P. s. 2 I´m disabled (I very slowly walk with a walker!)

    People like getting paid for their work. PDFs I have found online usually cost around 5-15 dollars/euros so they are vastly cheaper than buying the book versions, which tend to run 30-50 easy.

    If you have access to a printer, find useful documents online and print them off so you can look at them and study them at your leisure. In your browser where you find the option to print a page, you can also click on "Save Page As..." or something similar and that will download a copy of the page you are looking at.

    The links provided here by me and TheAliveWinner will be good places to start.

    Then simply save the web pages and store them like you would the PDFs.

    You want web design stuff you can download. Find an article you like and then use the browser you are using to save the web page onto the computer. Save the files to where you were going to save the PDFs. To save a page, simply hold down the Ctrl key and hit the S key.
