That's kind of the point of my new book "Python Projects"
If you go to Amazon the free preview covers the first chapter
(intro to Python) plus a section of chapter 1 which includes
interacting with the OS.

Other topics included are reading different file formats, Database 
access(dbm,shelve,SQL) UI design(CLI, argparse,cmd and GUI with Tkinter) 
Web dev (with Flask) and testing/debugging.

Its targeted at those who have done a basic intro to python and
want to go further and start their own projects.

Have a look at the preview it might suit you.

Sorry for the shameless plug but it does look like a fit.
