Then I won't do it. Kovid posted that a recipe could do almost anything, so I began to rethink my earlier comments and realized there might be a way to have the recipe mark items read. It would require a more sophisticated recipe than I had ever written.

Isnt it possible to start code in a thread or a process that will wait for the book file to appear or some other hack?
Possibly, but it would require much more fundamental coding than even the "mark it read" recipe code. At this point, we're not writing a recipe - we're fundamentally modifying the way Calibre's recipe system operates. Too much pain (for me) for too little gain.
