New in town

Hi all,

I'm just stepping into the what seems the wonderful world of Ruby/Rails and
was just looking for some recommendations for reading materials, resources
etc.

I am currently watching the Ruby Essential Training and Ruby on Rails 3
Essential Training over at lynda.com which so far seem pretty good for
getting me started.

So if anyone can recommend good books, resource sites, personal blogs with
good tutorials or anything they think I might find useful while starting
out, I'd be eternally great-full.

This is a great resource
