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.

You can just click on "Linux Tutorials" in the Main Menu (located on the right of your screen when using LinuxQuestions. There will be plenty of further suggestions found in the items there.
Learning Linux isn't a matter of reading random tutorials, it's about deciding on something you want to do, and then researching how you would do it. Guides like those posted above might help occasionally (rarely), but chances are you'd be better off just Googling for what you want to do and going from there.
The best advice I can give you is to use the machine like you would any other OS, and when you run into something you'd like to do but can't figure out how, Google it. When Google fails you, check the guides linked above, when they fail you, post on LQ to ask for assistance.
