Sharepoint - Document Management

I have a need to track documents and which users had read the document (basically open it).  Is there such a function/feature that's available?

Basically when we send a document out to users via email, they indicated that they had read the document.  We actually want something to show that they had actually open the document and look at it (even though they might not read through it, long as they had opened it).

Are there free web parts that's already available for sharepoint or anything that sharepoint may already have?  Even commercial sharepoint web parts/addons?

If you have permissions then you could look at audit log reports under site collection administration
