thanks for welcome,

I have been using this plugin and Goodreads sync for a while now. About half of my books are linked to goodreads and most have ISBN. I havent opened calibre for a month and when i tried today it always fails.
I have tried downloading metadata for books with just tile/author, with ISBN, with goodreads ID but it always fails. Even the books with metadata i had downloaded from goodreads before says the same thing. Goodread Sync works well.

Example:
A Crown of Swords - Robert Jordan - The Wheel of Time[7]

When i try to download both metadata and cover:
Spoiler:

calibre, version 0.8.28
ERROR: Download failed: Failed to download metadata or covers for any of the 1 book(s).

A Crown of Swords (Failed metadata) (Failed cover)

When I try metadata:
Spoiler:

calibre, version 0.8.28
ERROR: No matches found: <p>Failed to find any books that match your search. Try making the search <b>less specific</b>. For example, use only the author's last name and a single distinctive word from the title.<p>To see the full log, click "Show Details".
