Here is a site that I think you will like: ftacademy.org Specifically, in the materials section, there is a down loadable PDF titled GNU/Linux Basic. I downloaded and have been reading it myself and as a Linux user with several years of experience I have been learning from it. It covers a wide range of topics from how the file system is organized, the fundamentals of the process tree, basic shell commands and how to perform fundamental operations, and more. The site has other 'books' that are freely available too on more advanced subjects and on specific areas of interest too.

Sorry. I just discovered the site fairly recently. I like to search for free online books on Linux materials and stumbled upon that one.

Unfortunately, the brick-and-mortar book stores don't carry much beyond the teenage vampire collections anymore and most of what little they do carry is outside of my area of interests or totally beginner oriented. I used to like many of the O'Reilly book series, but it seems like they have been going down in quality recently, however, generally speaking, the Apress series seem to be pretty good.

Well it was last year, that I was refering to, but it's quite informative for a newbie and understandable. Most of the stuff that I read of O'Reilly's was kind of dated though.
