An author's validation

Some person I don't know sent me an IM, and it went like this...

xxx: Hi, I have been reading your book.
xxx: I think it's awesome...
popworldCP: thanks!
xxx: this book helped me fully grasp the concept of OOP
xxx: loving it!
popworldCP: awesome... that was really my mission, and i'm glad even one person "gets it" now.
xxx: it takes less coding to do something and it's easier to read
xxx: haha
xxx: i read well over 7 books on this subject
xxx: they never fully go into explaining the concept
xxx: your whole book is about OOP
xxx: thank you so much for a great book!

If the book never sells more than ten copies, that made it worth it.

Most definitely. It's not the money, it's the satisfaction that someone appreciates what you have done.

What book would you recommend to someone who wants to start coding and making programs and webpages etc. with a good html foundation? Because, HTML is the only type of coding I have ever even learned, even though I guess it really isn't coding

It depends entirely on what you want to do and how serious you want to be. I don't think I can give you a good suggestion.
