After some hours of testing here's what I found out so far:

1. Using amazon.de as the only source works , but only if the ISBN relates to a print edition of the book! All ISBNs relating to (german!) Kindle-Editions will be auto(mis)corrected!

Could this be changed, please ?

2. If using more than one Metadata-Source the results seem unpredictable to me, sometimes it works, sometimes it don't. Does Calibre takes the first positive result from a source or the last? Is the order the same as in the Config-dialogue? Does cover priority have influence on this ?

I want at least amazon.de and google as my sources but with both selected it works often but not always: Is it possible to change the Google-Plugin in a way that like amazon.de also books.google.de don't get their titles "corrected"?

3. I think I found a bug in the amazon-plugin refering to the retrieval of a book title: If there is an opening bracket in the book title retrieving stops there, for example the title on amazon.de "Beruf(ung) Trader: Schritt für Schritt zum erfolgreichen Börsenhändler" will be retrieved as "Beruf" in Calibre. This is not an urgent matter as those titles are rare but I thought I mention it here.
