Do you open each book individually to get that number or do you have a plugin that finds the info for you?

Just need read status, so far

Hi All
I try to concentrate on reading what ever books i have.
I only track "read status" in my main Calibre library.
My biggest issue is getting series info automagically, and not manually.
(test library have a couple of test columns just incase)

I get all that information from the book from the kindle for pc app, since that is the first place I download the book from before adding it to my Calibre library and yes I do that individually.

I have:

Subtags: Kind of misnomer, it's kind of a subgenre/data tag. I use regular tags for genres. If I get enough under a main genre with one of these subtags, it gets promoted to a new genre in the main tag list.
Page Count: Self-explanatory, but I stopped using it when I started using Goodreads and calibre added the Kindle page count file thingie after the 3.1 firmware update
Read Status: Yes, No, In Progress
Source: Where I got the book from; it's a prepopulated drop-down list that gets added to as needed.
MR?: Yes/No - whether or not the author is a Mobileread member

There are a few I used to have but deleted, like Date Read. It was redundant because of Goodreads and I got tired of updating info in two places.
