I currently have 20 or so books set up as collections on my ereader (initially set up using the sony program).

questions: How or can I import these books from the ereader to calibre?

If so, is this as quoted from the quick start guide: "Click the 'Add books' button in the tool bar at the top of the window, then select the e-books you would like calibre to import." Tried this but not quite getting it.

Help much appreciated.

For books already on the device, I would switch from Library view (the normal) to the Device view (Main and/or Card, depending on your device configuration)
Select Books that do NOT have a In Library tick: Right-click: Add to Library.

This only work for books that Calibre finds on your device (the scan may take some time. The task wheel will indicate 0 when done)
