If screen space usage is more important than seo you can take the  
best of both worlds:

use the "read more" link with a title-attribute that contains the  
unique description "read the full article about ..." or the like. You  
may even use the ">>" as most screenreaders will read the title text  
if one is given.

Seeing users will use the proximity and layout to instantly combine  
the linkt & the title while blind users get the neccessary  
information  read to them.
