I'll support @Polyread.  It emphasizes the fact that the method is  
somehow polymorphic, and it uses 'poly-' as a prefix rather than a  
suffix, which I think makes it sound better to someone new to Javari.   
In a sense, "poly" could be seen as a qualifier on "read," in which  
case the alternative of "readpoly" seems like it could be legal, but  
wouldn't be standard.
