Export ISBN numbers for import to Google books

Is it even possible to do this? Could be in any number of formats - txt, csv, xls, etc. Just something I can use to paste in all the ISBN numbers at Google Books. Look forward to responses. Thanks.

Can you dumb it down? I read the section you suggested, but I can't seem to find the right command to export ISBN's to one file (or even all metadata to one file). Not sure if I just can't figure it out or if it's not an option. Not a lot of experience with command line stuff.

If you want only the ISBN numbers:

Code:
calibredb list --fields isbn --separator , > library.csv
You actually get the Calibre database entry number, too, along with the ISBN number, each in their own column. It'll be in a file called library.csv in whatever folder you're in when you run it. (Where you are is listed on the command-line, in front of where you type the commands. Usually.)

Kovidgoyal and rogue_ronin, thanks so much for the help. You dumbed it up just enough so i could make some use of it.

Also, Kovidgoyal - great work on Calibre. Just found it a few days ago and am getting my ebooks organized and making some sense out of what was previously a mess. Why Amazon or [insert ereader parent company here] buy you out or hire you to do this on a larger scale is beyond me. Thanks.
