I recommend Complete Warrior, Tome of Battle, and (because you are good aligned) Book of Exalted Deeds. Lots of nice monk stuff in those.
Tome of Battle is especially nice. It's a whole book about martial arts style combat moves. The Swordsage class is basically what monks were supposed
to be (after WotC wised up and realized that casters get all the nice things). It even has a variant that gets the same unarmed damage and AC bonus as monks (and your levels stack for those things if you multiclass).
Incidentally, monks can
multiclass in my games, as can paladins. I think the creators put in that rule because they didn't want people to dip into monk for the Wisdom to AC or into paladin for the Charisma to saves. But they overestimated the power of that stuff, and didn't realize that the characters most likely to gain a benefit from it (wisdom and charisma based spellcasters), would also hate giving up caster levels.
As for the riddles, yeah, they aren't too difficult. One of the problems of an online game is that I have to write stuff like that myself. If I look for some on the internet, I know that anyone else can find them as well.
