It is not used such a phrase in Turkish. "Bu kitabı okuman gerekmez" is a more accurate phrase.

Yes; specifically, the -N ending on "okuman".

okuma = the (act of) reading; okuman = your (act of) reading.

"Your reading this book is not necessary" would be a more literal translation of this sentence.

I don't think that is grammatical in English. It is definitely understandable, but it sounds a tad weird. As to why...I am not sure :D

language is strange that way, some things just feel right x) but since i'm not a native speaker then you're probably correct,. would be interesting if more natives chimed in though: P

Sounds like a teacher to a small child that might not understand but yes "weird" to say needed

You can use need if you say "You do not need to..."

You cannot say "It is not need that..."

The "you" is missing (the -N of "okuman").
