how to say reading in spanish
Reading is something that is fun and if you cant read you are not so smart and need more reading skills
In the context you've provided, I believe you need to use 'lectura'. Spanish gerunds are not like English gerunds in that they do not function as nouns.
In your sentence, 'reading' is a noun. In Spanish, I think you would need to say something like 'La lectura es algo...'
I am a beginner, though, so you may want to wait to see other answers.
Reading, continuous form of Read, is as danrivers has said, Leyendo.
To read is, Leer.
The process of reading is Lectura.
