    Hello. I would like to ask you which of these forms is right to say:

    Her mother was disappointed in her behaviour. OR
    Her motherwas disappointed by her behaviour.

    Ive liked reading books on History all my life.

    And if we use the polite form I would like, the following verb has to be into continuous or infinitive form.

    'would like' takes an infinitive (or 'would like' + object + infinitive)

    I would like to travel to Ireland.
    I would like you to phone me as soon as you are back home.
