    Default I don't need English usage or/and grammar books

    I don't need English usage or/and grammar books because I have a good English tutor.

    Should it be 'or' or 'an'? I think it should be 'and'.

    Thanks.

    Your sentence sounds fine to me.

    You could say:
    I don't need English usage or grammar books because I have a good English tutor.
    I don't need English usage and grammar books because I have a good English tutor.
