In Spanish, is it more common to say, for example,

“Yo leo el libro” or “yo estoy leyendo el libro” if the action is currently taking place?

In English we usually say “I’m reading the book” rather than “I read the book” but in conversational Spanish, it sounds like it is more common to say “I read the book” (yo leo el libro) than “I’m reading the book” (yo estoy leyendo el libro). If you can provide an example for each scenario it would be much appreciated. Gracias!
