Learning how to use linux

heh, the title pretty much explains itself. where can i find some reading material or anything like that, basically something that will show me the wide known world of linux i guess. linux difenitly wasn't what i thought it was, but windows is gone now so i may as well start learning how to use this little penguin. i guess i'm looking for a page that will show me how to use all the commands, um, and show me commands. thanks a lot to anyone who gives me some urls.
