Add an event to ReportBook to fire when a Report is loaded and when a Report is Disposed.

Actually, a Disposed event will not help our situation, as it appears that the report instances are not disposed of as they are completed (another request). Rather, what is needed is an event that fires when the report is completed/finished rendering.
The workaround we currently are using is to place an invisible text box on the report footer that calls a user function. However, that requires us to add that text box to all our reports (projected in the hundreds), and we would rather code it once in the single program that manages the reports.

We are using ReportBook to process many instances of the same report (with different parameters) to produce a single PDF output. In one typical case, the ReportBook consisted of 1,600+ complex invoice reports which took 15+ minutes to complete. During the rendering time, we need to provide some visual feedback to let the user know that something is actually happening.
