Czytać is to read currently in the present, in general, or on a regular basis. Przeczytać is to have read something completely or to entirely read something in the future.
Thank you so much for clarifying it in such a simple way. It's been a journey to learn Polish, but counting on comments like this really helps me out.
holy moly this is hard to pronounce

What's the difference between czytać and przeczytać?
Does this question imply that we're going to read the entire selected text from start to finish? If I expected us to only get through a small portion of the text, then would I use czytać?
I guess that whatever you read, it will be finished... I'd go either with "przeczytać" or "poczytać" (to read for a bit). I'd be kinda surprised with "Co chcesz czytać?", it sounds like "What do you want to be reading?" to me.
