    Smile types of adverb clause

    Dear Teachers,

    for example:

    I am too weak to stand.

    the infinitive "to stand" is used as adverb of consequence because it can be transformed into the following complex sentence.

    I am so weak that I cannot stand. (adverb clause)

    what about the infinitive below?

    The book is easy to read.

    "to read" is used as adverb of what type?

    thanks for your help. have a nice weekend
