Extremely easy! Where should I start? Should I try it from a book or wait for college. If a book, which book? Should I learn C before C++ or would it be just as easy to learn C++ first. And again, is C easy enough to learn from a book. Which one? So far I only have experience in HTML

Learn c++ only.  The basics (introductory stuff) of C++ are C just with some minor enhancements.  I would start with several books and play.  

C++ how to program by HM Deitel and PJ Deitel
C++ programming language by Bjarne Stroustrup
 
are both good.  There are many others.  I would go to border or barns and nobles or some other large bookstore and spend a few hours leafing though the C++ books.  Then buy the 2 or 3 that you like.  Read then alternately as there are ussually gaps or areas that are weak.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
As regerds books, I would not recommend C++ programing language by Stroustrup, as this is quite a cryptic book, and would not be suited to a beginner.
I would definetly recommend the following web sites-
www.cm.cf.ac.uk/Dave/C/CE.html     - for C.
http://www.iftech.com/oltc/cpp/cpp0.stm   - for C++.

the following are MFC

http://www.concentric.net/~Tkader/frames.htm
http://www.microsoft.com/msj         - very useful downloads
