I need a good beginners book

I posted this is the Game Development section, because I'm looking for a good beginners book for Game Design in Java. Since nobody responded, I decided to repost in probably the place where it should be posted.

I am wanting to learn some game design, and I just wanted to learn from a book. So, I'm asking you all: What is a good book for learning how to make games in Java. I has to be <=$20. I would love to support some authors on this site if I can, but it needs to be a book that I can actually wrap my head around. You know, something for starters. If you have any recommendations I would really appreciate them.
I agree. Here's the link:
