We have a special little place we like to call "The Book Nook". We love reading around here. It is not uncommon for us to bring home at least 10 books when we go to the Library, and end up reading them all in a day or two. When it's around a meal time or, the natives are getting restless, I make a call for the book nook, which is just a little corner between our sofa and love seat. I keep a stack of library books in there and sometimes coloring books and crayons, they grab their pillows and blankies and head in there for some quiet "reading" which is pretty much just looking because they can't read yet. :) That way, they get a little intellectual stimulation :) and I can get lunch or dinner ready.They really enjoy it...And sometimes it gets them ready a little faster for nap-time!
