There are lots of other verbs that take “ne” (called pronominal verbs) and while I won’t go into detail about them here, you should know that they exist in the meantime.

Incredible human 1: Oggi sto organizzando una festa. This also happens with verbs like: — Avere bisogno di – To need — Parlare di – To talk about — Essere contento di – To be happy about If you use “ne” in the past tense, you have to make sure that the verb, in this case “read”, agrees in number and gender.
