What does this sentence even mean?

Yeah, I want to ask the same. It is difficult to translate sentences without any sense, logic or meaning...

Perhaps it could be: Is it better to sit at home reading many books or is it better to go out meeting people 'experiencing adventures'.

Don't know whether this could be an acceptable meaning, I'm not an English native speaker.

Not quite. That would be "okumak görmekten çok daha iyi mi?" This question is asking which one is better :) Not if one is a lot better than the other

That depends - inlond's sentence could be either "Is (reading a lot) (better than) (seeing a lot)" or "Is (reading) (a lot better then) (seeing a lot)".

I think the first interpretation could be a translation of this sentence.

I think it's just better, because daha = more and iyi = good, and more good = better.

I think in Turkish you have not to put "veya" resp. in questions "yoksa" all the time. There are a lot of examples as for example: Kahve mi, çay mı? for "Coffee or tea" Balık mı, et mi? for "Fish or meat". The dobble "mi" is doing the job of "or".
