So, if I understand correctly, the plugin needs a column that can be manually updated so it needs a regular, non-template based column. That's not ideal for what I'm trying to do but at least it's a fairly simple work around.
Another question: Would it be possible to add support for syncing a column with the Progress field in Goodreads?
