Is there a way to add multiple books to the list I've created?  I don't want to add them one at a time.  I just want to add a whole series of ISBNs (such as all of the books on my TBR) without having to click on each book or copy paste each individual ISBN.

I don't think there's a true -quick-add for multiple books. But here's what I have been doing:

When editing the book list, you can add multiple ISBN numbers. Just seperate each with a comma and a space. When you click the "search" button, it will bring up a list of all the books you just entered. From there you can quickly run down the list, clicking the "add to list" buttons as you go.

There is also the Book List Import Bookmark.  This will add to your lists such as your TBR or RL, not your book lists.

I was able to set my book list up with 33 at a time.  That seems to be the limit on the number of ISBNs you can enter.  I just saved the ISBNs from the download function and then pasted into word, converted table to text with comma separators and voila.  Thanks!
