    If you don't know how to read a book, how can that book help you?

    Welcome to the forum. When you post in the forum, it is important to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalse the word "I".
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark. We do not join sentences using two or three full stops.
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (ie English, Microsoft, Thailand).

    I don't understand your question. You said "I just have been reading a book". Have you recently finished reading a book in English? Did you understand it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    We understand that English is your second language.
    Yes, I speak French and Spanish. When I was a beginner, I could not read a book in French or Spanish. Now I am intermediate/advanced, I can read a book in French or Spanish. I need to use a dictionary for some words and sometimes I have to read a sentence three or four times in order to understand it.

    If you are a beginner, I think it is important to study and learn all the basics before you try to read a book.

    And also, be sure that you start with a book for beginners. Trying to read anything else will be useless and frustrating.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
