    It's possible, but I think that either polis's suggestion or the one below would probably be more likely

    I will be reading this book until 3.00 pm tomorrow.

    Your first sentence is incorrect. Only polis's version works.

    Aliii, we don't start a sentence with a full stop. Put the sentence inside quotation marks if you wish, like this:

    'I will have read this book by 3pm tomorrow.'

    It's not impossible, but one has to create a fairly unnatural context to make it work
