Almost. It should be: "I've read the book three times." "For" is only used when talking about a duration of time. For example: "I've been reading the book for 3 weeks." This is talking about a continued action that lasts over a period of 3 weeks. This type of sentence also implies the action is not yet finished. When talking about the number of occurrences of an action, "for" is never used. Some additional example are: "I have only been to america once." "She has seen the movie 4 times already." "They have played the game together 5 times this week." I hope this helps! Please let me know if anything is unclear.
