Does anyone see a problem with this method?

I wouldn't trust it. What if you have code running in paged memory (e.g., random privileged userspace process)? Pages can disappear under your feet. I think you need to remember how many bytes you managed to read and do the job thoroughly. It's not that much extra code.
