The Linux Command Line by William Shotts is a good resource. The PDF book is free to download. I am sure others forum members will come alone with additional suggestions. I know Moem recommends a site that is quite animated, but I cannot remember the site.

Thanks very much. 555 pages, wow, I wish I had information this good back when I started Linux 6 years ago. Did a year or so of Zorin which had little if any documentation at the time. Then a few years with Ubuntu where I was in way over my head. Nothing sketchy about this tome.

thanks a lot. Good books indeed and some I put on my must-read list, thanks a lot for the advice. Sometimes technical information fills my brain and in order to relax I read fiction or classical literature.

At the time I was only an anonymous reader of the forum, she recommended in one of her posts :
https://linuxjourney.com/

I remember it because one of my suggestions for my Xmas present was the Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible from Richard Blum & Christine Bresnahan which has a bit more than 1000 pages and was a recommended resource of this very site.
It is very interesting and begins with general consideration of what lays behind the curtains of a Linux OS. There's many to learn and discover ; the only problem is that it takes about the first third of the book, so you don't immediately script or use commands if you're progressive. I feel it's worth however to understand some aspects of the OS if you want to use powerful commands with success.
But it is not free...

This might be a closed question, but I can't help but add some books which helped me a lot at the time
1)The Linux Pocket Guide: Essential Commands.
2) The Linux Command Line.
3) Linux for Beginners: An Introduction to the Linux Operating System and Command-Line.
4) The Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible, 3rd Edition.
It is very important to find the right and understandable literature at the beginning of your journey, otherwise, everything can seem too complicated and intimidating. I hope you have already understood a lot of things, but if you need to, you can always go back to the basics.
