    $20 - $30 you can get some pretty decent books. I don't think you could find anything that good under $20 though.

    JavaScript books:
    One of the few books on jQuery
    http://www.amazon.com/jQuery-Action...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1222888472&sr=1-1

    Prototype/Scripty book from one of the core devs apparently
    http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Pro...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1222888437&sr=1-1

    PHP 5 books:
    This should get you up to speed on some Object Oriented programming and design patterns
    http://www.amazon.com/PHP-Objects-P...r_1_12?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1222888361&sr=1-12

    Modern frameworks and such
    http://www.amazon.com/Pro-PHP-Patte...=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1222888397&sr=1-4

    Some web usability and such

    thanks.

    PHP is the one thing I feel like I DON'T need a book on.. between my C/C++/C#/Java programming experience and php.net (which is freaking awesome), I haven't needed anything but an occasional visit to w3schools :)
