I was given a SLR camera for my birthday (yay!) and I am a complete novice in photography. I'd like to learn how to take decent pictures. Tips? Essential online readings? Forums?

I was given a Canon EOS 35d for my birthday and I find the Canon manual to be extremely boring to read. I would love to learn more on the functionalities of the camera and various tips online via forums and website, but struggle with it (a lot of forums are meant for professionals).
I'd love some suggestions to get me started. Sites? Blogs? Forums?
I am doing okay at Photoshop and I am quick learner, but I'd also like to take pictures which wouldn't need to be retouched (or as little as possible), meaning I'd love tips on how to use light/handle camera/angles etc.
For what it's worth, I like portraits and street photography the most. Thanks a lot!
