If you mean "почитать" as a perfective verb form of "читать", because it also means "уважать", why can't you use it as a perfective present?
e.g.
почитывать
почитываю
почитываешь
почитывает
почитываем
почитываете
почитывают

Don responds: The verb почитать of course is perfective. When you add the suffix -ыв-, it makes почитывать, which is a derived imperfective verb. In Russian the perfective never forms present tense.
