1. How often do you read books?
2. How often do you read a book?
3. How often do you read the book?

Are the three expressions all the same?
Would you let me know the differences among them?

The difference is #1 asks about books, plural. #2 uses "a" which is the indefinite, while #3 uses "the" which is the definite article.
