Welcome to CF!
There are literally millions of books you can get. I suggest you go to your local Borders or Barnes & Noble. You will probably hyper ventilate at the selection of books they have. (I know I do haha I'm a geek)

Even with being a paraplegic you can still do everything in the computer field anyone else can do. It all depends on what you like to do. I suggest you try and dabble in a few things to get a look at all the fields you like.
Web Design, Software Design, Hardware, etc.

If you have anymore questions on your journey please feel free to ask anyone here.
Again, welcome enjoy your stay

A+, ooh we have a few members on here who know quite about that.

So you like more of the, "here is your problem let me fix it for you" type of stuff.
Sort of like computer repair/upgrade.

Did a small search for some books:
Amazon.com

Haha Nah you wouldn't need ALL those books. You can actually learn a lot about just by hovering over our computer software and hardware section. All kinds of questions / problems arise through there.
Those where just some suggestions.
