Another suggestion for you is to look at the monthly photo "contests" on forums like this, or the galleries of user photos. See what inspires you and try to do likewise.

The K-x book came out yesterday. You can get it here for only $11:

Judging from sample pages, looks nice. As far as the actual value of instruction and clear advantage over the official manual, can't tell. People seem to like the author's previous books.

I got my K-x recently and been playing with menus, options, taking test pictures, learning my way through it. It is not as hard as it initially seemed. Once you're past the initial sensory overload and start retaining what you've read and with a little help of the manual and this great forum, you can advance quickly. At least in being able to properly understand and use camera's features. In my personal experience, no matter how many books you buy and read, practice and own experience are invaluable. If you still think you need another book, 11 bucks certainly ain't much.
