    06. I have to leave.

          I have to leave because I have many things to do.

    **This one is grammatically fine, but a bit formal. 

    You could say:

    I have to leave now, I have lots to do.

    07. He is traveling.

          He is traveling and he only arrives next week.

    **Needs a bit of work.

    You could say:

    He is travelling and will arrive next week.

    08. I would like to try.

          I would like to try to sell my vacation at least once.

    ** The reader is going to assume you are trying to sell a vacation you have planned for yourself. This doesn't really make sense. 

    You could say:

    I would like to try selling vacation packages just once to see if I like it.

    I would like to become a travel agent and try selling vacation packages.

    09. I start working at 8:00 a.m.

          I start working at 8:00 a.m. and I only leave at 1:00 p.m.

    **Almost got it.

    You could say:

    I start working at 8:00 a.m. and will leave at 1:00 p.m.

    10. He finished reading.

          He finished reading the book 3 and he will start the book 4.

    **Again, almost, just needs a bit of an adjustment.

    You could say:

    He finished reading book three and will start book four. 

    He finished reading the third book and will start the fourth book.

    06. Is correct

    07. ..."He will arrive next".

    08. Not correct. And I don't understand,"sell my vacation". Are you speaking of a travel agent selling vacation packages.

    09...."and don't leave until 10 pm".

    10. Drop "the" before book.comma after "3".
