I need a project

Hi, I am brand new to programming and was wondering if anybody had any suggestions of where/ how I could learn more python, and or a good project that would help my learn new elements of code as i learn them.

My summer project is also to learn Python. As such I've been busy converting all of my vbScript maintenance scripts. Feel free to post any Python questions and we'll try to help. I have found a few things frustrating but I've managed to work through most of them. I am currently wrestling with wxPython.

For learning Python I highly recommend the book

Beginning Python From Novice to Professional (3rd Edition - Apress)
Magnus Lie Hetland
ISBN-13 (pbk): 978-1-4842-0029-2
ISBN-13 (electronic): 978-1-4842-0028-5

I've read several books on learning Python and this one is by far the best.
