The time you spend learning about a product is research, so it is definitely
billable time. After all, when a developer reads specs and cracks open a new
section in his C++ guide, this is also research and he wouldn't think twice
about charging it.

Behind every book is a ton of research and one can't exist without the other.
Charge it and don't sweat it.
