This is what I currently do when I load empty books into calibre. It'll be nice to have the plugin create the book title/author rather than manually typing them all, so that all I then have to do is the metadata and fine-tuning.

Sites like Fantastic Fiction and Goodreads are usually my first choice for an author's backlist as the info on an author's website can range from very detailed to just a book image.

Sounds like another useful plugin, looking forward to it's release. No rush though as the problem that I've discovered with plugins is that each additional plugin increases the time I spend manipulating data which then decreases the time I spend reading. If only I didn't feel the need to keep perfecting my library or have to sleep or work...
