I know about Linux Cookbook but haven't read any of it. I picked up a copy of Linux Pocket Guide by Daniel J. Barrett back when I was first getting started with Linux. That was the 1st edition of the book. This was probably early 2005 or perhaps late 2004. Then I found an old Unix textbook at a second-hand store. I never read either of those books cover-to-cover, but they helped get me going.
Then I gave away both of them to a friend. Much later, I picked up the 2nd edition of Linux Pocket Guide, mainly for nostalgic reasons. I still have that edition. I haven't owned any other Linux books; early on, I turned to online sources and man pages.
Currently reading Eastward to Tartary: Travels in the Balkans, the Middle East, and the Caucasus by Robert D. Kaplan.
I have never listened to an audio book. I've downloaded a few eBooks or whatever, but I haven't ever gotten all the way through one of those -- I'm definitely a "dead tree book" person! Most of my books have come from second-hand stores, thrift stores, that sort of thing, except for when relatives have given me gift cards for Barnes & Noble (or Borders -- out of business now, right?).
