You will found a load of resources at The Linux Documentation Project.

I would recommend Garrels's Introduction to Linux for starts; it's available in several formats on the "Guides" page at that link.

Hi and Welcome!

"Linux In A Nutshell" is an advanced Linux book By: Ellen Siever

Tho it's advanced you may find as you read it that it gets your attention. As it did mine.
Also, my local Library provided me with all the Linux books that I requested.
Google can more than likely help you find good books. I found Linux books at this site too:
www.ebookee.org
Good luck to you
