Student or Learner
Tell me please, if to say:
1) There are books on the table. These are books which people enjoy reading. - I guess it's perfect.
2) There are books on the table. These are the books which people enjoy reading. - Does it mean that the books I am talking about are the only books in the World which people enjoy reading and people don't enjoy reading any other books? Or maybe it can mean the same as the 1st sentence above?
As I know "the" is used when we talk about an exhaustive list...
For me, the second sentence is a bit ambiguous. (Although I would most probably translate it with the same meaning as the first one.)
If I wanted to talk about the books on the table, I would omit the article.
If I wanted to talk about the only books in the World, I would add 'only' or something like that to make it more clear.
