if you feel comfortable with VB.NET and your employer is ok then stay with it. Reasons to shift to C# might be:
- easier to find a job in it and likely get paid better
- most examples/books nowadays are in C#
I assume you're working with webforms, a flavor of ASP.NET which exists since 2002 (I also made a lot of applications with it btw). Since around 2007 MVC came out and a lot of companies/developers started with it. Still a lot of webforms are being done and
it's still a great technology and there are many controls out there for it or you can create your own (I once taught a course about how to do so).
For books; In as fast paced world in which we live nowadays it would be cool if we had enough time to go through books. Most developers, and myself, keep up to date with going to conferences, watching webinars (channel 9, pluralsight, wintellect, ...) to
keep up to date. If you work for a company try to concince your manager to give a budget for access to any of these (channel 9 is by Microsoft and free).
