Looking for whole grain bread recipes and tips to help me transition from all-white bread.

I bake a lot of bread, pretty much all of it white. I want to start making whole grain bread (both for health reasons and to experiment with different flavours) but I need a bit of help. Whole wheat flour seems to behave very differently to white flour, and my loaves inevitably turn out dense and stodgy.
I'm looking for great whole grain recipes (not just wheat - I also want to bake with spelt, rye, etc) and tips to help me improve my whole grain breads. My usual sources - the fresh loaf
and the Bread Baker's Apprentice
- are mostly focused on white breads.
