so happy to find this thread!

I love/need to write but, since I attended middle and high school in another country( not in english) I am sorely lacking in grammar and punctuation skills!!!
I find this very frustrating:
I was thinking of doing the course with The Institute of Children's Literature, but right now we don't have the $ so, I want to try on my own.
I would really appreciate if you could recommend some books on grammar ect;

tia

There are many!

Personally, I prefer to use the AP Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law .

You will also benefit by reading The Elements of Style by Strunk and White.
