Thanks for a wonderful app that continues to improve with every update.
Bulk downloading is on the list, but it isn't at the top. Before that is cleaning up preferences, separation of the content server IP address from the wireless device IP address (CS will be able to use URLs and 3G), and style control.

PeterT's suggestion is a very good one. Personally I think it is better than bulk download. When you add the books to calibre or decide you want books on your device, add them to a reading list. Set that reading list to auto-sync. The next time you connect your device to calibre (as a wireless device), reading list will automatically send the books. You don't even need to touch your computer's keyboard; simply connect, the transfer happens automatically, then disconnect. Because it supports separate lists per device, it even works in a multi-device household.
