I know no one like to read a text book, but good option would be picking up the Gang of Four design patterns book. http://www.amazon.com/Design-Patterns-Elements-Reusable-Obje... I recently read most of it (preparing for a final exam yay!) and the really nice thing about this book is the examples. Each pattern has a description, a list of pros and cons, a discussion of a piece of real software that used (or often pioneered) this pattern and then finally an example of C++ that uses it.

Honestly, the discussion of pros/cons and then the use in industry sections make this book a very good read. It won't be quite as entertaining as lippert's blog, but then again it is a Textbook
