Getting a Handle on Drupal Modules

I'm still flapping around with Drupal. (I'm currently experimenting on my Spice Ridge site, because there are things you just can't test on localhost.) The Drupal book I bought was necessary but not sufficient for me to get started. It let me know what to work with first--Drupal modules. Intuitively, I thought the first thing would be to create content, then work out how to display it. As it turns out, you need to get a grip on the Drupal modules before you bother with content or appearance (themes). While has loads of documentation, some of it is helpful, some of it is inscrutable. Here is some module advice I've found helpful, comforting, and/or inspiring.
