Looking For A Good Book

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I'm new to linux and I also love to read. I thought it would be a good idea to find a book on linux and read it but I am having trouble choosing which one... does anyone have a suggestion

i don't know of any published book but you can try the guide to slackware linux

some of the topics in the book apply to slackware but most can be applied to all the distros.
