Would "I dag jeg læser" be correct?

No, this is an example of inversion since the sentence begins with a statement of time. See https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4435335 for more details.

I don't think so (I'm Swedish not Danish). But I think you could say Jag læser i dag.

Well, obviously you are Swedish and not Danish if you spell "jeg" as "jag", haha.

Is there a specific reason to use this instead of "Jeg læser i dag?"

Like in German, to emphasize that you're going to read it "TODAY". So "I dag læser jeg." is equivalent to "Heute lese ich" in German.
