    need some books in order to



    - I need some books in order to read.

    I would like to ask if I was able to use "in order to" in the sentence or not. Should I have used "to" instead?

    Re: need some books in order to

    If you are saying that in order to give you the opportunity to read, you will need to own some books, then it's right, if unnatural. However, if you are simply saying that at the moment you haven't got anything to read, just say "I need some books to read".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
