Please help me; which is correct to say...

You were very enthusiastic about discussing the books you read with me.


or

You were very enthusing about discussing the books you read with me.

(I am not sure If there is a word as enthusiastic)

and I have also another question ...

discussing with me the books you read

or

discussing the books you read with me.

Do you think If one says... discussing the books you read with me....
means we read the book together / the book we read together or not?

Brend,

'Discussing with me the books you read' is grammatically the most correct in this sentence and yes the word 'enthusiastic' does exist so the most ideal sentence would be:

You were very enthusiastic when discussing with me the books you read.

(You can even turn 'when' into 'about' if your sentence relates particularly to the person's enthusiasm about the discussion rather than the books.)
