Just want a simple solution
In Calibre, click the "Preferences" icon at the top, then another icon towards the top of that screen will say "add your own columns." Then click the green "+" on the far right and do your thing.
I added my own column, the "yes/no" style (you'll see it there) so that I can mark a book as read with a green check mark once I've read it. Then at a glance to the list I can see what I've already read.
