선생님은 책을 읽으시지 않습니다. => 선생님은 책을 읽지 않습니다. You add respect form(경어) only to the last verb. But you should use respect form for every nouns in a sentence. (나->저, 식사->진지) And 경어 is to respect the subject of a sentence. If subject is not someone/something to be respected, you shouldn't use respect form. 저는 식사를 하지 않았습니다. 편지가 아직 안왔습니다.
