Ratings doesn't really work in Calibre

Hello,

I have a 300+ book library, that I've collected over the years.
I wanted to use calibre ratings feature to filter out crappy books from my library (ie books with less than 3 stars), unfortunately, the feature doesn't work.

At least 90% of my books are available on Amazon and I have the metadata synced for them in calibre. Yet the rating field is empty most of the time. I only have just a few very popular books where it is present.

I'd like to have the following features:

-Download the ratings from multiple sites, and aggregate them (only Amazon would be fine)
-Don't just show the stars, show the review count as well
-Sort books based on stars and review count. Most stars with highest review count first.

As far as I know ratings download from amazon works fine. If you have a particular book(s) for which it does not work, then feel free to post its ASIN/amazon URL and I will take a look.

As for review counts, that's not something I am interested in. But you can easily write a plugin that does it.

Oh and note that calibre does not use the amazon API to get data. APIs cannot be used in general in non-web software since they would require every user to get their own API key.
