I've recently started learning Python. In particular I've started Learning Python the Hard Way which I'm now half way through while I wait for O'Reilly's book Learning Python to arrive.
The free HTML version has been enjoyable and well paced experience. I highly recommend it for anyone else interested in picking up python.
I've been punting my exercises up into my gitweb repo which I'm also mirroring to my github account. Yay for free backups.
