There are so many Physics books out there, and as you are well aware, they can be quite expensive. First, check the FSCJ Library and its affiliates for books that may be of use. There are several online / eBooks freely available through the LLC. Keep in mind that older books are perfectly fine for learning basic physics. Below are some authors and publishers worth checking out.
Schaum’s – Great outlines and workbooks for a variety of subjects
Steven Holzner – Author of several “Physics for Dummies” books.
Robert and Daniel Oman – Authors of “How to Solve Physics Problems”
Dover Publications – Publisher of older (but still excellent) texts, from the introductory through the post-graduate level. These tend to be fairly inexpensive as a result.
David J. Griffiths – Author of several wonderful upper-level Physics texts.
