Paene Eutropii librum lexi. Post Eutropium, qui liber mihi legendus est?

Try Priscian, Institutiones Grammaticae, Book 1 and more if you like it, and see what you think, I say. Everyone should read it so why not now or soon. I class it as a post-modern mix of thriller and detective story.

Examines Prisciani Caesariensis Institutionum Grammaticarum librum primum, dico, et ultrá si placet. Ille liber omni legendus est; proinde cur non jamjám vel citó? Eam fabulam quae modo post-moderno et genus criminale et genus sensûs stimulans miscet habeo.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Salve amice Adriane

Valeo si vales!

Gratias tibi ago sed multos libros de grammatica habeo!

Habesne aliam opinionem?

Vale!

You surely have lots of books on many things, Quis ut Deus. I think you might be missing the point about Priscian. I'm not recommending it be read merely as a grammar book but because the reading of this famous Latin grammar book is useful in itself, since, unless I'm mistaken, your other grammar books won't be in Latin, nor were they compulsory reading for so many generations for over a millenium. It's a seminal work and one I personally as a learner love to read. But if it doesn't appeal, no problem!

Te, Quis ut Deus, multos libros quae ad multas res pertingunt habere non dubito. Fortassè cur illum librum commendem non capis. Non solùm utilis ad grammaticam discendam est lectio illius libri sed utile in ipso est eum latinè legere. Quòd, nisi fallor, non latinè scriptae tuae aliae grammaticae nec tàm sunt seminales quàm una tot saeculis magìs mille annos lecta. Eum legere mihi equidem tironi valdè placet. Si hunc autem librum non diligis, licet!

Amice Adriane,

Iam commendationem tuam intellego! Ignosce mihi ob stultiam meam.

Gratias!

When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him. ~Swift
