3. right click on the book just entered and "Copy"
4. right click the second book in the series and "Paste" everything from the copied book
5. tweak only the differences between the books, say adding or removing a few tags.

This would be useful for series, or for different versions of the same book
Sounds much like "Bulk Meta-data Edit"
with the added ability to pre-select the values based upon the first book selected.
