    Default english

    I am reading A Kind Of Sermon by W.S. Fowler. In paragraph 5, there is a sentence I do not understand. The sentence is " And instead of "read", I could just as well say "listen to". Would you please paraphrase it and explain? What does "instead of " mean here? And also "could just as well"?
    Thank you very much.

    And instead of "read", I could just as well say "listen to".
