Database structure

I'm setting up a database with multiple users. Each user will have their own data and has no need to access the data from other users. For example, each user has a bunch of tasks that they want to track.

weekly tasks
monthly tasks

weekly tasks
monthly tasks

My question is, would it be better to set this up using a separate table per user or a separate database per user? I want to be able to prevent user1 from accessing user2's data!

Also, can any of you recommend a book on creating database strucutres?
