Default Hello from Indiana! Newbie Questions re: Books

Heya all, I'm Jonathan from northern Indiana. I am very new to DIY audio (and indeed, circuits of any sort). I have a pair of Grado SR80e headphones, and I have decided that, during this quarantine, I am going to learn a bit about basic circuit design and building, and then try a DIY headphone amp (of which I see a few projects out there).

Would you recommend any of the books seen here: 76 Best Circuit Design Books of All Time - BookAuthority

Or any of these (as they're free)?

Electronics Design 101

Electrical engineering | Science | Khan Academy

Other free books / websites?

I'm not opposed to buying anything, but if someone says, "Skip all that and use this website," then I'll proceed in that way.

Thanks, all!

So many good books are available free, there's no reason to buy any.

That's pretty fascinating. I will look more deeply into that.

Thank you! I will look over that book. It seems from the get-go to be a bit beyond what I need, but I can always use it as a building block.
