How do you tell if the speaker means 'it's a...

Re: don't like to

Hi susan,

1.Do you like to read novels?
2.Do you like reading novels?

Both 'like' in the sentences above mean 'enjoyment'. What is the difference in meaning between them?

Thanks a lot.

don't like to

Hi,

Can I say "I don't like to..." if I have never done it? For example,

Thanks.

Thank you very much.

Re: fair game

Hi susan,

I don't understand what you mean here?
Do you mean a suspect who can't be found by the police is on the loose but not at large or on the run?

Many thanks.
