1. I have read the book the Secret.
2. I have read the book the Secret before.
3. I have read the book the Secret and know the content about it.

(What is the meaning of #1? Does #1 mean #2 or #3?)

  • English -

    Books' titles need to be in italics or underlined.

    I have read the book, The Secret.

  • English -

    1 and 2 mean about the same thing. 3 means the same, but adds emphasis that the speaker knows the content of the book well. It would be better to write #3 like this, though:

    I have read the book, The Secret, and I know its content.
