How often does that happen? Would inverted book be better or have the original issue? Inverted reading would still have the dangling participle.

I'm not sure there's a better name without being more verbose like reading the wrong way, pretending to read, reading wrong, reading inverted book, reading upside-down book, upside-down open book.

Either holding_upside-down_book or holding_book_upside-down would be best. A common trope of holding it upside down is that they're not actually reading it, but rather looking over the top and spying on someone. However, the question should also be raised if we want a more general tag that doesn't only refer to books since the trope also applies to newspapers, magazines, even paper maps etc.
