Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Today I successfully installed Midori Browser into Xfce and have Xfce set as my default desktop environment using startx. This for me is a huge milestone because now I can graphically surf the web and work on LFS equally.
However, I have hit a snag with Parole Media Player. It doesn't work, so if anyone can help me with the bug, please do as I have a post in the LFS section regarding it.
If all things proceed as planned, I aim to have a few more packages added soon...
Finished the main chapter of X-Windows for BLFS today and fired up the twm (tiling window manager) that is more or less a very basic desktop environment with a few X-Terminals (xterm) open, and got a few more packages built.
I'm now working on the X Forms Common Environment (Xfce) UI to give me a basic desktop environment to work from and after that I'll be looking into the Xfce applications as well.
