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.

I'm new to Linux as of today and I so far am impressed. My first use has been phenomenal but I'm not sure if the operating system I got is right for me. I am currently using gOS and I love it. The theme and all but. I'm having a hard time working with it. I can't find file folders like programs, and my computer. I have a iRiver e100 mp3/mp4 player. I connect it into my computer. I find the file but it won't show my music or pictures. How can I drag my music from my Music device into the My Music folder I made so I can listen to music on my pc. So I'm wondering which linux is easiest to use and pretty fast. (I hope I'm in the right section)
Oh also I got gOS by pendrivelinux because I am out of cd's so If you suggest a OS please make sure it's available from pendrivelinux so I can just use my SD card then install it from there. I tried ubuntu but ISO download link is broken or something.
Have a look at http://distrowatch.com/ to see what specialized Linux variants exist, otherwise you will end up hearing everyone advocating his/her beloved Linux distro (or BSD distro). The best distro is always the one that has those tools by default, that you want most, and also the one that makes you feel comfortable.
It seems that you have a lot of LiveCD testing ahead of you, or simply stick with what you have installed already.
