Do I need to delete my TBR pile to download my inventory with only the books I have in my Bookshelf?  Is there a way to delete TBR books without having to check them one at a time to when hit the "Remove Checked" button?

Possibly not. :(  What I've done is whenever I receive a book nowadays, even if I'm going to start to read it that very day, I never click the "TBR" thing.  Too bad it becomes this big pain...

Curious, I just downloaded my bookshelf and I only got the 17 books currently on my shelf, not the 100 books on my TBR pile.  Do you have books on hold posted to your shelf?  If you do, change the bookshelf view to "books on hold", and you can delete them all at once.  There's really no reason to keep those books on your shelf unless you don't want to lose the footprint information, but you don't need to also delete the books from your TBR.
