    Ever since we started this blog, we've talked about Linux at great length. We've provided tips, tutorials, hacks and even some spicy gossip from the magical Penguinland. While that may suffice your geek cravings, the information falls quite short if you're trying to learn about Linux in greater detail. For learning Linux, you'll need a deeper knowledge and understanding about the system and its functions. And what better way to learn Linux than by filling your shelf with some great books on the topic?

    I don't know of any books besides your regular "Linux for Dummies" type books. Hopefully someone will come in here and give a vast list of some really great books to use to learn Linux. I'm ready to purchase a few, so bring on the list!

    Myself, I don't fill my shelves with books. I would rather fill my folders with pdf files. Also fill my bookmarks with sites. That's the way I learn about Linux.

    If you want to take a no-fluff, only-the-good-bits approach towards learning Linux, then the LINUX POCKET GUIDE is the best place to start. Though not a comprehensive reference book, the little book does pack in a lot of material that you can reference any time you want. An essential book to own for Linux administrators, and for students who are studying for Linux-based certifications.
