There are many books to choose from. If you want free books, take a look at RUTE and The Linux Cookbook. Also Sybex Linux+ Study Guide is good if you are new to Linux.

There have been lots of advancements in the Linux community. I recommend you look for books with more recent publishing dates. I also recommend you buy books focused on particular distributions. Many of the more generalized Linux books are difficult to work with at a CLI level because different distribution use directory structures differently and in some instances different components. Also beware of some open source books on subjects like MySQL because they frequently are written first with Windows in mind and then edited to accommodate Linux. Linux is the poor step child in this case.

I agree with reddaz - save your beer tokens and download RUTE (root users treatise & exposition) - everything you need.

Don't forget the HOWTOs, guides, etc, etc at the Linux Documentation Project:
