We would like to know whenever a person has read a list item.

Is there an event we can hook on to, or another way to log reading of an item.

SharePoint does have Item-Level Auditing (at least it did in 2007, I'm assuming it's also available in 2010). This can track "views" of items. Maybe it'll help.
