a. This book isn't worth your time to read.
b. To read this book isn't worth your time.
c. Reading this book isn't worth your time.
d. It isn't worth your time to read this book.
e. It isn't worth your time reading this book.
f. This book isn't worth your time.


Which of the above sentences are grammatically correct?

They are all supposed to express the same idea. It is not an easy structure, One gets confused.


Many thanks,

They all seem correct to me, however, (b) would not likely be said in normal conversation.
