Adding empty books
I was very excited to learn that calibre supports adding empty books. I keep a separate excel file with all my books listed along with books that I would like to purchase/find. I was wondering if there was anyway to add several "empty" books (maybe from a command line) so that I can copy and paste a list and have calibre create the "empty" books based on that action. This would certainly be a step forward to eliminating keeping a separate record of books in excel.
result 4 empty books
Thanks in advance!!

Maybe I'm a dummy but if you created a TEXT file named "Storm Front.txt" and imported it into Calibre woudn't that basically do the same?
Once you got the real ebook, import it and delete the TXT version using the Edit MetaData dialog.

That is what i USED to do. Now it is much easier to use the Calibre facility for creating dummy book entries (initally with title and author set to "unknown") and then edit the title/Author to the value you want. It also avoids having a dummy .txt file around.
