    only for reading or only for to read

    Hi all. What is the correct sentences and why:

    'Does Susan always wear glasses?' 'No, only for reading.'

    or

    'Does Susan always wear glasses?' 'No, only for to read.'

    Thanks.

    See above. The second would be correct if you removed "for".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
