The use of Finnish akkusatiivi instead of partitiivi makes this mean "I will read a book" or "I will read the book", right? In that case, all translations that are not in the future tense should be unlinked.

I agree, unless there's an adverbial specifying the time frame in which you finish reading the book, like “päivässä”.

Let's summon the Finnish corpus maintainter:@Silja

I agree, all the English sentences with present continuous tense should be unlinked. Let's wait and see if @Sanaseppo has something to say about this, too.

Edit. Oops, it was not Sanaseppo who linked these but @Thanuir

I unlinked the English sentences with present continuous tense.

@Silja, thanks! Maybe you could also have a look at the Finnish translations of #2651095 ("I read a book")?
