Длинная may be used only to form of book (phisical proportion). In other case must be: большая, объёмная. Длинным может быть роман, рассказ, поэма но не книга.

    Yes, it can refer to a book. If you google "длинная книга", you’ll see it’s actually used a lot.

    Is it really wrong to say "I do not like to read..." instead of "want"?!

      • Я не хочу́ чита́ть = I don’t want to read,
      • Мне не нра́вится чита́ть = I don’t like to read,
      • Я не люблю́ чита́ть = I don’t like to read (about something you read regularly).
