This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
In addition to the above two well regarded books, I would like to suggest: "Web development with Java Server Pages" by Duane Fields. It is good for beginners with great examples and is very well written.
