I really want to update my TBR since I have been slacking a lot.

I would love to just be able to post a whole list of ISBNs at once. Kind of like how you can post multiple books into the system.

Does that make sense and is there a way to do this?

There is the PBS import bookmark.  First item on this search.  I'm pretty sure there is a list import, but I'm not finding it.  Stuff moved.

All I'm finding is how to import a list to your bookshelf.   Sorry.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but is a nice tool nonetheless. Thanks!

I did send in a suggestion and they sent an email back saying that they thought it was a great idea and will visit the idea when they are making changes to that part of the site.

Wow, that was one hell of a runon sentence.

Depending on how many you want to enter at one time, there is a "post multiple books" option where you can add up to 20 books at one time.

Edited to say that using this option here you can add up to 100 books - not just 20 - using the ISBN number. I didn't go beyond the first page and didn't see the drop-down menu where you can choose up to a hundred to add at one time.

But that's just for adding to your bookshelf, not for your TBR.
