would be doing/would do

< Previous | Next >


My friend said she was going to take a nap. I want to say that I would like to do it too instead of going to class. Which one sounds good enough?
1. That's what I would rather be doing right now.
2. That's what I would rather do right now.
Thank you!

    Both sound fine to me. It is the usual difference between present simple and present continuous.
    would rather be doing - focuses on being in the process of sleeping
    would rather do - focuses on the action as a whole, also on its completion
