Now that I think about it, maybe I can do something like this:

Open both the book page and the companion page separately.  Then have 
the companion page (using AJAX?) wait for updates to the book page.  The 
server can notify the companion page of what to do whenever the book 
page changes.

That should be possible, right?  My Javascript/AJAX knowledge is pretty 
weak.
