Read (not browse) collection from any browser

What I want is a browser-based ereader that is accessible from anywhere, that keeps centralized track of progress, bookmarks, etc and does not rely on third parties (self-hosted). The Epubreader for Firefox looks nice, but it is not portable. Oreilly's Bookworm is perfect except that it is not self-hostable. Drupal doesn't have any modules available and I'm not about to go building my own PHP CMS from scratch. I've looked around a good bit but I can't seem to find exactly what I want.

My thought is this: Since Calibre already has a local reader and a content server, how difficult would it be to combine the two (with support epub and mobi if possible) and be able to actually read the books from the web interface?

Thanks.
