This may be too late to be helpful but here are a few of my thoughts.
What about sharing the readings in groups? This could be individual students sharing their books, or giving a casual book report with their small group. Each group could also be asked to read a certain book together.
They could keep a reading log/journal of what they read/listened to and something significant from each source.
Students could pair up with a younger set of students and read a story to them (provided another teacher is willing to share her class). If they would do this, they could choose a story before hand and practice reading it before they share it with someone.
Do a reading theater presentation. They could perform it in class just to enjoy themselves. Small groups could each perform a story for the rest of the class. You could have them present the story to an audience outside of the classroom.
Depending on how much pen and paper work you want to do, you could have them design a poster for something they read or draw some pictures and write a summary of the material.
Provide some time for choral reading.
Let them bring cushions or pillows for relaxed reading. They could also bring a stuffed animal as a reading pal.
Enjoy popcorn while you read.
Here is another idea from my brainstorming mind. It may or may not fit with what you are trying to. Have each child prepare a snack (or part of a lunch meal) to share with the class. They should bring something that is triggered by a book. (Blueberries from Blueberries for Sal, doughnuts from Homer Price, cherry dumplings from The Boxcar Children, maple sugar from The Biggest Bear, and so on.) This would require some thought and preparation before hand.
