cycling books or magazines?

Newbie here. Does anyone have any recommendations on some books or magazines to read to get better at cycling/touring/camping?

This may be a little premature since I've only been riding for 2 weeks, but I'm fascinated by all the things you can do after building up endurance and speed. At this point, triathlon sounds like something I'd love to work towards, but at the same time touring a few days with a camping bag sounds awesome too. I just want to get out there and do recreational things.

Check out this organization: http://www.adventurecycling.org/

They're all about touring & camping on bicycles and have lots of resources, books, maps, etc.. Join and you'll get a magazine too.
