Yes we need to have a better mechanism. However, there is nothing stopping us to publish all the books that are finished and ready to be read. That is the proof of the Wikisource pudding..

So is there a Wikidata query showing all the books that are finished and ready to read. With this we can advertise, having all books makes it complete. Knowing all books that are finished is secondary.

The validation-status data can and sometimes is stored in Wikidata. See how it is stored here : https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Badges and here an example of Wikidata query for all items about validated text : http://tinyurl.com/yaud3uoy

Thad said, most of the times Wikidata is not up-to-date, and there should be a tool to take care of that instead of human being.
