"I don't read them"

One of my teachers asked me (in French) if I read manga. I responded with "Je n'en lis pas", but I was wondering if I should've said "Je ne le lis pas". Given the situation is talking about manga in general, which version would be correct?

The most appropriate answer is "je n'en lis pas". "Je ne le lis pas" would be appropriate when asked about a specific manga:

-"Est-ce que tu lis des mangas ?"
-"Non, je n'en lis pas."

-"Est-ce que tu lis ce manga ?"
-"Non, je ne le lis pas."
