Is it ok to have many "Read more" in one page?

I would like to discuss this case more.

A Web page contains a collection of news articles. The main page lists the first few sentences of each article, followed by a "Read more" link. A screen reader command to read the current paragraph provides the context to interpret the purpose of the link.
I always thought read more links require more description or should be avoided especially when they are many in a page. What do you think? Do you see adding a descriptive title in this case can be an acceptable solution?
