Who is the instigator of the action in this combination?

Asked by Ticce (46points) 1 month ago

I don’t like his book reading.
May mean:
1) I don’t like the way he reads books. (The instigator is HE)
2) I don’t like the way his book reads. (The instigator is the book) (though it’s not realistic, I know)

Do you agree that “his book reading” may be interpreted as there are two instigators as I illustrated?
