What exactly is meant here, if anything? Or should I just take this as is? Is this referring to what three different people are doing simultaneously? To convey that sense in English I would use "-ing". Victor is reading, Victoria is listening to music, and I am eating pizza. "Victor reads, Victoria listens to music and I eat pizza." sounds very general, and the last statement, contrasting with the first two, comes off almost humorous.

I agree with your last statement!

—What do you three like to do for fun?

—Well, Victor reads, Victoria listens to music, and I eat pizza.

I eat pizza too, but reading and listening to music and key elements to the foundation of a good education so I would suggest that you read and listen to music as well. Maybe ask Viktor and Viktoria if you can participate in their reading and listening.
