A for me.

B/C are awkward
D is the same as A only adds "does" which is implied in A
E . Like should be preferred here.

^ A ^

"as" ---> when comparing verbs

"like" ---> when comparing nouns

So, B and D are out.

C is awkward and in E "unlike" spoils the choice.

But aren't we comparing activities here? I think the comparison is between how the books read, and not a noun. Thus, shouldn't "C" be the preferred choice?
