For some items such as books I would like to use something to actually read, and it would be convenient to be able to access another self hosted app via Emby.

No, they've been saying that for the better part of a decade. I've since turned off my book libraries and installed Calibre web and Audiobookshelf because I got sick of emby failing entirely to save where I was in an audiobook.

I jumped on board with Audiobookshelf earlier this year, and am largely satisfied with the project.  With that said, I've found that position saving only works reliably when you limit listening to a single device, and definitely not when you cast audiobooks.

I've not had that issue, but I will say I only use my phone and web on my laptop. But I literally have come home from getting groceries, halfway through a 2 hour mp3 (multiple in book), and went to go listen again and it started over. And this was from the normal view, not downloads folder. Since I know that has never worked.
