    Hey twinkle,

    i also started linux with ubuntu 8 and referred many websites and books to learn this on my own. I saw your question and i went through my big Bookmarks Collection and got top 5 good links for you.

    The Best One:
    Ubuntu Forums themselves -

    Short tutorials :

    MUO Articles:

    For books:
    Oreilly - Linux in a Nutshell
    MUO's book of Linux
    any handy command reference book

    do you know which Linux distro you want to install and learn?

    You should start reading our Newbie’s Getting Started Guide to Linux. It explains all the basics and also helps you pick the right Linux distribution for you. It's not brand new, though, so some information (version numbers) may be outdated.
