In constructions like this, what preposition do we use after than, if any? Are all the sentences grammatical?

  • Note that to is not a preposition here, but a marker for the infinitive to read. – choster Oct 14 '17 at 11:59

Each of your three examples is fine. To me, the second one What better way to spend a rainy afternoon than reading a book? sounds the most natural.
