As others have said, there aren't any ubuntu-specific books as yet.
There are some books on Debian, although many seem to be quite out of
I don't know what you're looking for (introductions, basic primers,
hardcore technical specifications), but one book I like is 'Linux
Desktop Hacks' by Petreley and Bacon, pub. O'Reilly.
(http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/linuxdeskhks/) There's a few sample
hacks on the website to give you a taste.
Clearly written, geared towards the desktop user (as opposed to the
developer), it's platform-agnostic, but much of it applies to ubuntu -
and what doesn't will generally apply to Kubuntu.
