How about M A like you did, then:
  M N .
  M N a read    [1]
  M N M-x vm-set-message-attributes read

To see key bindings in the summary, switch to a summary window, then
"M-x describe-bindings" or "f1 b".  Then you can search in the help
window (for "read" in your case or "mark.*read" with a regex search).

Of course, if you notice your mistake right away, vm-undo (C-x u) can
help you.

[1] Note the 'a' binding was removed from the default set of bindings
in 8.2.0(?).  To restore that, use vm-legacy-key-bindings.  Of the key
binding that were removed, I use 'b' and 'a' a lot and 'L' a few times
a week.
