Why isn't "leyendo una carta" accepted (just without "estoy")?

Being literal here, but "I'm reading a letter" can mean "Estoy leyendo una letra". For example at the optician, you're asked to read letters.

If you legally changed your name to "reading a letter" you could be introducing yourself. In that case ser would also be acceptable.
