Are these sentences correct:
1-I do not need to read books about gardening. I could write them.
2-I do not need to read books about gardening. I could write books about gardening.
3-I do not need to read books about gardening. I could write such books.
Is there a difference in their meanings?
I guess '2' and '3' mean the same. '2' is of course unwieldy although logical. I am not sure that '1' is correct, and, if it is , I am not sure that it means the same as the other two.
3 might suggest that you have some gardening books by you at the time of speaking.
Thank you very much Mike and Tdol.
Tdol, do you mean I could have written some gardening books at the time of speaking?
Why would I say 'I could write such books' in this case? I don't seem to follow your logic....
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
