"My favorite Linux book for beginners is still Robin "Roblimo" Miller's Point & Click Linux!. This 2004 book may be out of date, and the copy of MEPIS Linux that comes with it several generations behind the times, but Robin does a great job of explaining exactly what you need to know to get to work with Linux. It's still the best beginner's book out there as far as I'm concerned.

"If, like a lot of people, you're interested in learning about Ubuntu Linux, then the best book for you is Mark Sobell's A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux (Versions 8.10 and 8.04). This book takes you all the way from the basics to intermediate system administration."
