Not yet, but I suggest you work a bit on Thomas Schwarzgruber 
<possebaer at gmx.at> who most recently touch the code to add a read time info - 
it would be a continuation of his work if he also did a read date info.

Otherwise please have a look at the archive someone fixed a similar problem by 
temporarily changing one line of code in kimdaba sources.

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?

http://ktown.kde.org/KimDaBa might be the answer.
