Calibre - displaying ONLY latest imported books?

I'm sure there's a very easy way around it but I can't find it...

If I import some new books and want to edit the metadata etc... sometimes in the middle of this process it (I do something?) decides to mix this new batch into (alphabetical order) my whole library. I'm then left trying to remember which books/authors I imported and having to search for them (invaribly probably missing one or two at times).

Is there an easy way of ONLY making it display the VERY latest imported batch of books please?

Probably something very silly and easy... right? LOL!

Thanks in advance

1) Tag-'em during import using the Adding Books (was in Look and feel) preference 'Tags to add',
then search:tags:your-tag

2) search date:01-10-2011 <- note the format for searching is fussy and does not respect the display format below. Be sure to use your date

The simplest solution is to click on the header of the date column to get them listed in reverse order of adding to the library.

If you want to check each one individually after adding, then setting a tag to be automatically added when the book is imported is a good idea. I set a TODO tag on my books on adding just for this purpose.

That is exactly how I do it. No tags to add or edit that way. Just two quick mouse clicks.

I do both these things too. I set calibre to add the tag working to any new book I add to the library. But often sort on date to get recent adds to the top.

In addition to the other fine suggestions, you can also display books recently added.

For example, to display books added since February 1st, type the following in the search box:
Code:
date:">2011-02-01"
