Can someone recommend any books/sites with "small" and "useful" CUI/console based programs for beginners ? The examples in text books are ok, but they generally demonstrate theory and not practical applications. I want to practice/test many concepts at one time and not just a few in small "toy-programs" ? I am well past "hello world" but no where near the java-gurus in this forum.

That used to be called "JavaBat". Beware: some of the exercises are much more difficult than they appear at first sight.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
