UNIX Beginner's Book

I am a beginner and have recently started to study unix. I checked some of the posts on this forum just to check if a new member like me can easily be guided and found it very interesting. This seems like a great place where i can get answer to my doubts and questions.
I checked the thread for unix books however there are many options mentioned over there. Can anyone suggest me a book that will teach me and keep my interest (i am not bookish person so tend to loose interest while reading). A book that not only tells me stuff but have exercises that makes me work/do than just to read. A basic book that that i can use to read while on move and will have lots of fun exercises which i can work on when i am at my desk.

P.S.: This is my first post in this forum
