    "I get really into reading books."

    Hi,

    Are we allowed to use 'ing' form after 'be into something'?

    "I get really into reading books."
    "I am really into listening to music."
    or
    "I am really into books."
    "I am really into music."

    Thanks.

    Re: "I get really into reading books."

    Yes. Note that to be into something is a somewhat casual form.

    Although your first sentence is possible, it would usually be phrased ​I really get into reading books.
    I am not a teacher.
