Using Content_server to read (not get) books

Hi everyone !

Right now I'm conducting some experiments, trying to find solution for building
small intranet web-based library. I've tried a whole bunch of different software, until found that Calibre has it's very own web-based server and it's working perfectly.
But - that's just one part of what I want to have
Second part - is it possible to use web-access to Calibre for reading books ? Without having to download book, without even any client-side application ?
I've found some tool called Monocle, and even found it in Content Server - but I can't understand how to use it.
I'd appreciate any help

Most formats are a single container (file). To use (read) them, you download them in their entirety.
Calibre content server only serves (complete) books
Remote desktop viewing is not bandwidth efficient.

You could use the content server for browsing and an browser addon for reading the epub version of your books (EPUBReader for Firefox, MagicScroll for Chrome...).
