This is a sentence in direct speech:
They asked me: "Which of these books would you like to take".
I need to rewrite it in indirect speech. And obviously I have to apply sequence of tenses rule.
My idea is:
They asked me which of these books I wanted to take.
Is it correct? And maybe it's possible to keep "would like" somehow:
They asked me which of these books I would like to take.
But it seems to violate sequence of tenses. Please help.
