How should I ask when I point at a book?
1) Do you read that book?
2) Are you reading that book?
My confusion comes from the fact that we can use Present Continuous not only for an activity happening at the moment but also for an activity happening around that time.
What is the difference then?
Do I ask just about the habit of reading it with the first question and about the activity of reading it with the second?
Could you please give your opinion on these questions?
However, how about if I wanted to convey these meanings
1) Do you read that book (generally)?
2) Are you reading that book (around this time)?
I think, in this case the first sentence is possible, isn't it?
Could it be a good sentence when reading the book is someone's habit?
