bulk custom column assignment

I have a custom column named: #genre, I have just imported a lot of books and was wondering how I could assign them to that column all at once.

@procyon- Select the books, and use Bulk Metadata Edit (just press 'E'), enter the #genre value you want the books to have, and press OK - watch the spinner as it does the multi update.

You will find your custom columns in the middle tab of the Bulk Metadata Edit dialogue.
