Assunto:  Like reading vs. Like to read
 
Mensagem:  I am not convinced there is a difference.

I like reading mysteries. = I like to read mysteries.

I like going to the supermarket. = I like to go to the supermarket.

Regardless of which I use, nobody is going to raise their eyebrows and stare at me. Both sound very natural.  

Something important to remember is that grammar is not always chiseled into marble.  I have heard university professors argue about grammar points.  Grammar is more a set of observations than a set of rules.
