    If you want to be a career programmer, make sure your maths is up to scratch - learn about group theory, set theory and algorithms.

    I'd then take a general look at object orientated design and learn how that works and the methodoligy/design patterns that go with it.

    Here there are tons of free ebook sites out there on the net just google for Top 20 free ebook sites.

    My recommendations are:

    Head First Java - very easy book to read and follow
    Head First Design Patterns - easy style to read but about design patterns in Java
    Effective Java (2nd Edition) - best practises for Java coders. (read this last)

    These should all be quite easy to follow for the beginner.

    You might want a more in depth book also but I wouldn't read this one cover to cover

    which is O'Rielly Java in a Nut Shell - much more detailed

    If your talking a career change then also have a look at the following tools for Java

    Hibernate
    Spring
