I recommend checking out this blog: Steamy Kitchen. You'll find lots of easy and tasty things to make there that would be perfect to start your wok adventures with.

two really good places for inexpensive cookbooks is TJ Maxx and Cost Plus, which is also a good place to buy an inexpensive steel wok, as well as some very good wines from around the world.

Oh, BTW, don't forget to season your wok.
