Student or Learner
while reading an IT book, I found the sentence 'If you want to know what makes the thing go, please do read onto the next section'
I have 2 problems with this sentence:
1. Can I remove 'do' before the word 'read' ? How does the meaning of the sentence change after removing the 'do'? I think there is no changes but there may be a difference between two ways. What is it?
2. Can I remove 'on to' after the word 'read' or replace it by 'on' ? Can you give me some replacements for 'on to' with no changes in meaning.
Thank you very much.
I think it should have been "read on to" not "read onto." I'd say that was a typo.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
