    Professor Villa made her students read/to read/reading four novels.

    Professor Villa made her students read four novels.
    Can I rewrite the sentence as follows?
    1. Professor Villa made her students reading four novels.
    2. Professor Villa made her students to read four novels.

    If yes, is there any difference in meaning between them?

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    The rule says: Make + Object + V. in the base form (bare infinitive).

    No, you can't.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
