I have learned programming with books, mostly due to bad internet conditions. I still have an extensive library of them and I prefer them over video courses. I love reading so that may have played a major part.

I remember downloading the php documentation instead of using an online one due to the slow (and limited) internet 😬. But I was in a hurry to learn and also easily distracted, so was jumping from code to docs and so on. Especially at the job which I started without extensive programming knowledge. That's one of the reasons why I was not learning much by reading books.
