Textbook Recomendations

Can anybody suggest a good Spanish learning textbook for me.
I am a new learner and my experience is limited to a few weeks listening to podcasts. I have plenty of time to continue to listen whilst sitting in the taxi but I believe some textbook learning would be very beneficial.

Thanks

My favorites are the Practice Makes Perfect series from McGraw-Hill.
Complete Spanish Grammar
Spanish Verb Tenses
Spanish Pronouns and Prepositons

I was just about to say what cmon said - I am using the Practice makes Perfect books, and really, really enjoy them. There is a whole long series of them and they go from basic grammar overview to more advanced books specifically addressing the subjunctive or sentence structure or similar topics..........

Just the're a news books that I found in the internet a severals books that I can give you a hint for my own view point.

You can consult the website isladelcarmen.
I can't give exactly the real name because it could took as a spam.

There're an many books with translations in Spanish and English.

Thank you very much for the recommendation. Do you know if the one on the past tense verbs talks about when the preterite and the imperfect are both possible and the differences?

Thanks

I haven't seen that particular book, but I know that the overall grammar books do a thorough coverage of that topic....

Did you find the book that you was finding?

What's the label or author of the book that you found.

A question:

Do you know your grammar?

I mean, English grammar?
