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.

Didn't know about these. Just checked and London UK's last LUG seems to have been 5th Oct 2010. None planned as far as I can tell either. Kent's looks like it is still going. Perhaps because they don't see consuming beer as a primary purpose. That could be done without an LUG. May well go to Kent's on 8th March... I say may because I've got ridiculous commitments and its a bit far but I like the idea of it..
And state income tax. But the car tabs are cheaper than Washington state.
Geez, tell me about it! I just found out this week that Oregon has the second highest income tax in the country as of 2013, at 9.9%! Behind only California at 13.3%. No wonder I can't seem to make any money here! I'm going back to school for infosec, and then maybe I'll move to Washington, which has no income tax.
I've only been to a couple of the meetings (so far) but the Boston LUG (www.blu.org) seems to be doing pretty well. There is also a seperate LUG for Desktop users. I haven't been to any of those meetings yet but would like to get a chance in the near future. They are a remnant of the old Boston Computer Society which folded up shop back in the 90's. Fortunately some of the UGs continued on independently and the Linux Group was one of them.
