    I know EXACTLY what you mean. I was at that point 3-4 years ago for sure. It was a book that made it click with me: Learning jQuery That was a while ago now, so I'm not sure if there is better ones or what, but it worked for me. I brought it on a flight and I remember getting off the flight and running to my hotel room so I could crack open the laptop and try stuff. I think it's stuff like this with jQuery that get the imagination flowing:

    $("#button").on("click", function() { $("#area").addClass("cool"); });

    When I click this button, add a class to this other element. Now CSS can do new stuff do it! Anything! Fun!

    I also have a whole class starting from scratch if you're so inclined.
