In addition to the suggestions here:
The Post Office Pavilion, just off Pennsylvania Avenue. Lots of space here, although not a lot of comfortable benches and such.
The Martin Luther King Memorial Library. - You don't have to be using the library's books to read here. It's across the street from the Gallery Place metro stop.
The Smithsonian Castle. Lots of places to sit and read in here.
The Freer Gallery Loggia.
The U. S. Botanic Gardens. Free to get in, surrounded by flowers, no pressure to leave and both outdoor courtyards for spring/summer reading and an indoor hall with benches where you could sit for a while.
The Gardens on the mall - especially the Enid Haupt Garden behind the Smithsonian Castle and near the Sackler Gallery and African Art Museum.
The National Cathedral. In the sanctuary, but also in the viewers gallery and Bishop's Garden, as well as in the basement near the gift shop. Lots of space here.
The Lobbies of some of the great hotels in the area.
Someone suggested Union Station - I have to second it, mostly because it's open in the evenings, which is the biggest problem here.
Kramerbooks and Afterwords near DuPont Circle. Open 24 hours a day, this is a bookstore that encourages reading when you are here.
The national Museum of the American Indian. Benches on all levels - comfortable space in their restaurant and in the center, as well as all the wonderful spaces outside.

Staley: The fight for a new american labor movement?
I didn't read a story about A.E. Staley. You did, or at least you were supposed to. So how about if you answer your own homework question?
