This is not what I can read in
http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/noClickHere :

In this page I can very clearly read:
We do not recommend putting verb phrases in link text.

When a screenreader can spring von link to link and in every link is
written "read more", so what do you understand/remember after hearing
this 4 times? You know exactly what the links are about si you can make
a clear choice?

I would urge to write clear linktext as adviced in above url as level 1,
also because this is showed as tip of the day when a page validates in
the w3c-validator.
