Basically, all the links posted so far are good. I'd recommend checking out some Hellenismos/Hellenism-specific forums, too, such as hellenismos.us and http://forum.hellenistai.com/index.php, just to see what people are talking about, get a sense of what people generally do/believe in. I'd also recommend reading the Odyssey and the Iliad if you haven't yet (I know a lot of people, in the U.S. at least, read them in school), as well as the Homeric and Orphic Hymns...there are a lot of online resources for these documents, and they are important mythological bases for Hellenic religion...I know whenever I do rituals/offerings I use the Homeric and Orphic Hymns. Also, theoi.com is a great resource for learning about all the Hellenic Gods and Goddesses...we generally worship the Olympians, as well as the various Underworld Deities (Hades, Persephone, Hekate, etc) and, depending on the tradition/person, many of the other minor Gods and the Titans.

I like the Hellenistai forum, although I'm not such a big fan of Hellenismos.us. I used to be a member, but haven't gone back since I had enough of the spread of misinformation and generally nasty attitudes of the owner and his followers towards those they disagree with.

I agree with you about The Iliad, Odyssey and the Homeric and Orphic Hymns. It's very important to familiarize oneself with the traditional literature to get a feel for the way the ancients conceptualized the world and the gods.
