Have you enabled audit logging? You could query the audit log in a timer job and then whenever someone views an item run the code that you need to run.

Thanks, psv1973, I think querying the audit log can just do such a work! Do you have any sample code on this?

How about somthing like this in the execute method of your event receiver:

SPAuditQuery query = new SPAuditQuery(SPContext.Current.Site);
query.AddEventRestriction(SPAuditEventType.View);
query.RestrictToUser(userid);
query.SetRangeEnd(DateTime.Now.AddMonths(-1));
query.SetRangeStart(DateTime.Now);
SPAuditEntryCollection auditCol = SPContext.Current.Web.Audit.GetEntries(query);

auditCol will now contain all View events
