English is my second language; I try to improve my command of it. My trying usually means wishing really really hard, but I've come to realize that's not enough. So, reading it is. I know there're tons of helpful materials online, but I always end up surfing instead of studying. So, books. Any recommendation would be appreciated. Cheap recs would rock my world. Currently on my shelf: a dictionary and The Elements of Style by Strunk and White.
Curious, George: English/Writing Reference? I would like to improve my writing skills. Which books on grammar, style, vocabulary or writing would you recommend?
