Syncronize pdf and ebook reading from an USB pen using android and linux devices

Hi,
I store my pdf and ebook files in an usb pen and I would like to be able to read them both from my android tablet and my linux pc keeping trace of last opened files and last read page for each file so that to be able to continue to read from where I left independently from the device I use.
If possible I would like to do that without the need to connect to internet, but only moving the USB pen from one device to the other.
Is there any software that can help me?
Thank you,
Xwang

I think it was on GitHub that I saw open source software that could do that.
I don't remember the name of the project.

You have to compile the code yourself, for both Linux, and Android.
I don't remember details, but the books, and configuration files have to be on the usb pen, and not the Linux or Android device.

I'm trying to find it, but I don't have any idea about what words I should use to refine the search.
