Does anyone else ever read grammar books just for fun? Sometimes a just crave nice orderly grammar rules and the occasional odd exception explained. It's probably just my background in Latin shining through :).

Does anyone have a grammar book they recommend?

I really can't tell why but I do like studying grammar. I guess it has something to do with me liking puzzles and related things.

No but I really need to find a way to make grammatical rules exciting.

Try this book: Laugh 'n' Learn Spanish: Featuring North America's Most Popular Comic Strip - For Better or for Worse

The book has a great structure that breaks down expressions, phrases, etc.

i think that's the first time i've heard "Grammar" and "fun" in the same sentence..... lol

still, i'm jealous that you have the ability to enjoy grammar (i can't stand it myself)

I enjoy the grammar when it helps me understand something confusing. I didn't know why I kept making mistakes on pronouns, but after reading the section of Barron's Spanish Grammar I realized that I was confusing direct and indirect objects.

Yes, I read grammar books for enjoyment, in short doses. But I don't have a Spanish grammar to recommend, sorry.
