I would recommend you two books to have a thorough learning of ASP.Net and C#.
Pro - C#2008 and the dotNet 3_5 platform - Andrew Trolsen
Pro ASP.NET 3.5 in C# 2008 - Matthew MacDonald
, Mario Szpuszta

I would suggest you get the newer copy of the previously mentioned books for .Net 4 plus have a look at the others listed below. You will then be using the current version of the .Net framework and will still be able to target .Net 3.5 if you choose with
the benefit of learning the latest and greatest.

Many of us have very limited book budgets.
You can have access to quite a few c# and other books for US$99 by joining ACM.
"ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, ..."
Also, imho, you need to be looking at c# books for c# 4 and .NET 4. c# 4, .NET 4, and vs2010 have be out for more than one year.
BTW, c#, like Java, has its roots in c and c++ and experience gained by Anders Hejlsberg from working with Borland's Turbo Pascal.
For learning c#, you should definelty downloard LINQPad, a FREE terrific environment for experimenting with c#, LINQ, and SQL (and also VB and F#).
Books via ACM Safari (a subset of the complete Safari) include:
"Programming C# 4.0", Ian Griffiths; Matthew Adams; Jesse Liberty
O'Reilly Media, Inc., August 18, 2010; ISBN-13: 978-0-596-15983-2; 864 pp.
Jesse Liberty is the original author of the above book; the one above is the sixth edition
"Pro C# 2010 and the .NET 4 Platform", Andrew Troelsen
Apress, May 14, 2010, ISBN: 978-1-4302-2549-2, 1752 pp.
"Essential C# 4.0", Mark Michaelis
Addison-Wesley Professional, March 10, 2010
ISBN-10: 0-321-69469-4; ISBN-13: 978-0-321-69469-0; 984 pp.
You'll have access to others like the Albahari brothers' "c# 4 Pocket Reference", et cetera.
In the ACM members' version of Books 24x7, you find more than a few books on or about c#, example:
"Pro ASP.NET 4 in C# 2010", Fourth Edition; Matthew MacDonald, Adam Freeman and Mario Szpuszta
Apress © 2010 (1616 pages); ISBN:9781430225294
The above book is a newer version of the book suggested by Pankay Sharma. I like Matthew MacDonald's books; imho, he's a terrific author.

P.S.: if you have a decent local public library, you should try visiting it.
I live in a small town; our local library does not have a decent computer book collection.
However, at nearby cities with decent collections, I can purchase an out of towm membership somewhat inexpensively.
Many publishers' websites will let you download one or more sample chapters so you can better evalutate a book prior to purchasing it.
Also, some bookstores have a brief money back policy that lets you return a book as long as you keep it in like new condition.
