"Minha mãe gosta de ler livros."

Translation:My mother likes to read books.

Can someone please help me understand why "de" comes after or between words only sometimes? And why at all? Thank you.


In this case, it is related to the verb gostar. The preposition DE always follows this verb when it means "to like".
