This question already has an answer here:

You should sell me that book I'm very interested in

or is it better to write it as

You should sell me that book in which I'm very interested

I know that the former is more informal than the latter, but what I do not know is whether the former is well written or not (I'm not used to write sentences that end up with a preposition)

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Proof-reading is off-topic. But I'm going to guess that you're worried about ending a sentence with a preposition. Don't worry about that. It's okay. No human would ever write the second sentence. – Mr. Shiny and New 安宇 Apr 8 '13 at 14:18


"You should sell me that book which I'm very interested in."

is what you're looking for.

Please excuse the lack of proper formatting. This is my first time using this site and I'm on the mobile version, so I'm not sure how to properly format it.

OP isn't asking for suggestions, but whether it is OK to end with a preposition. – Kit Z. Fox Apr 8 '13 at 14:28
Ah. I see. My apologies. I misunderstood. – 4rkain3 Apr 8 '13 at 14:34
