"I réad much" is not bad Grammer but probably would not be so stated by many. On the other hand, DUO frequently over-use "a lot" where much or many would be preferred by English speakers.

I agree with your assessment of Duo's reluctance to use 'much' and 'many' but can't agree with 'I read much.'

If you extend the sentence by including what is being read e.g. 'I read much books/magazines/comics.' vs 'I read a lot of books/magazines/comics.' the latter is more appropriate.

However, 'I don't read much' works!

One could also translate as "I read much" but not as "I read too much"

'I read much' isn't very good grammar though is it?

Mucho in Spanish translates to 'a lot'.

'I read much' is perfectly good grammar. During English lessons at school I was taught to avoid 'a lot' in favour of more precise phrases.

As mentioned in my reply to you in another discussion, 'alot' is not a word, showing that Duolingo doesn't always get it right. See this site

I read lots is a perfectly valid translation. That's how I would have said it and I'm American as you get!
