The title “Present perfect continuous’ is shown that, action is going on continuously or in progress. There is no end in the present situation. ‘Have been’ and ‘Has been’ are helping verbs are in this part.
You have to know this. instead of “I am always reading books”, you can say ” I have been reading books” in the meaning there no changes. but ‘have been’ or ‘has been’ gives same meaning ‘always’.
