    I enjoy reading

    How do you say in Russian?

    I enjoy reading, swimming, and studying Russian.

    Thanks in advance.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    "Мне нравится читать, плавать и учить (изучать) русский". Or if you want to make it stronger: "Я люблю читать, плавать и учить (изучать) русский".

    Thanks. Actually I knew that

    I like to read, to swim, and to study Russian.

    I thought I was supposed to use the gerund form of the verbs.

    Just a note, not a correction - люблю is stronger than нравится but not as strong as English "love to read", it's equivalent to "I like" in this case, but it's much stronger when we talk about people (compared to English) and not used as often as English "love".

    You can say: мне нравится плавание, чтение и изучение русского языка.
    It's grammatically correct but sounds not very good in that context. But in other context it could sound good. Like:

    Имя: kwatts59
    Рост: 5.9
    Вес: 95
    Интересы: плавание, чтение, изучение русского языка
