    In my class, we are learning from this guy's textbook (Leon Schram's Web Site). The materials are kinda pricey though...

    What interests you in Java?

    Is it making an Applet (animation or a game maybe?)

    is it making desktop software (using Swing package?)

    android development?

    Whatever it is, just get your head through the basics (primitives, arrays, writing classes, etc)

    and then try to achieve small tasks in the subject area that interests you most.

    This is something you might like.

    Just by reading a lot, you cannot be clever with Java (or any other). Practice it. So what you can do is think about a very simple application or a tool. Then implement it in Java and see how far you can take a move.

    For an example, these days I am writing an application to post Facebook status in Java(with Swing). So doing that I have kind of relaxation as well as I could memorize the subject matter. You can try the same. ;)
