Theres plenty of books out there, I have bought my fair share of books on Ubuntu and Suse...etc But for me, the easiest way to start learning is to is to just start installing it on an extra machine, then play around with it, do dual boots, try different distros, google ?s, read forums, follow the mailing lists...etc All the books in the world cant compare to just diving in and doing it.
Unless you are really looking at getting into some deep knowledge on a specific subject, IE Security, Linux Kernel hacking...etc Otherwise just start having fun. Eventually you will figure out where you need some more indepth understanding and you can go get a book on that subject.
I bet you'll find installation to be pretty simple and I wouldnt think youd need a book for that.

I started out in the DOS days, and can usually muddle through stuff on Windows machines, but I want to move to Linux and want to read a few books so I know what I'm getting into and what to look for when various things go wrong.
