To start development in a particular area, we generally google for tutorials with keywords like “beginners’ tutorials on … development” or “ebooks on … development”. We get a great number of search results and good sites and blogs for learning. Still we look for good ebooks to follow a systematic approach for learning.
In this post, I’ll try to share about such ebooks on Android development.
To make the list first comes the books of CommonsWare by Mark Murphy (My favorite author):

You’ll be able to purchase 3 books from CommonsWare that are kept up to date in pdf form. Moreover, The guy who wrote this book is a very active participants to answer any development related questions in http://stackoverflow.com.
There are some other good books for applications development (not games; I’ll give another post on good Android Games Development books)
I’ll try to share some reviews on these books in future along with the list of many more fabulous books I’ve missed here. You guys will certainly have some way to get free downloadable versions over the web. I’ll try to share some download links too with limited sharing (considering limited sharing is not Piracy). 🙂
