Reading documentation is something I've been doing alot lately. This is made agreeable by jests contained in this documentation. For instance, in The not so short introduction to LaTeX(widely ported, though also strongly rooted in linux), in the disadvantages of LaTeX it states that:

- your hamster might, dispite some encouraging first steps, not fully grasp the concept of logical mark-up
- it is very hard to write unstructured, disorganised documents.

I forgot what document it was, but it stated that one of the most common problems was "failing/forgetting to read this document".

The Python tutorials I tried so far are also mostly amusing.

Any other givers?

I found that Why's (Poignant) Guide to Ruby (http://poignantguide.net/ruby/) was a very entertaining read even if I didn't need or want to learn Ruby :)
