Import via paste

I’ve added a third way to import data into LibraryThing: a simple paste box. This makes it a lot easier to import from “protected” pages–pages LibraryThing would need your password to “see.” (These include purchases, library checkout summaries and so forth). Just get the “source” for the page (a menu option on all browsers) and cut and paste it into the import page.

    I just did a little tutorial on how to use a
    Red Laser Barcode Scanner iPhone App and the paste box to upload books while wandering around your house.

    It's here:

    Limits to # of books pasted in?

    I tried pasting in a list of 936 ISBNs, but the system only recognized the first 540-or-so. There are no duplicates in the list.

    I’ve tried uploading the list as a txt file, but get the same results.

    Any suggestions??

    Hi. Trying to add my book lists from goodreads and shelfari. I can’t seem to get it to work by entering the website and my specific info.
