Thanks all, really helpful feedback (and appreciate the welcome backs). Sounds like as I suspected that the "always move them all" simple option is not as convenient for you compulsive list keepers .

So it sounds like I need to just add two new checkbox options for a list - one as to whether it gets displayed on the main menu, and one for whether it gets sorted when viewed. No promises for when I will get this done but it's on the todo list...

Here is another to add to the list.

Welcome back.

It is nice to see your name on contributions to the site again

Is there a way to auto-populate a list based on a Goodreads listopia list? Say for example, there's a goodreads list "(x)'s Must Read's" with 25 books on it, auto-populate a reading list in Calibre based on that list (and, obviously, whether or not the books exist in your calibre library).

Apologies if this has already been asked an answered, I checked but there are a fair few posts!

The Import List plugin has can import from lists from various sites. It has some predefined lists including some from Goodreads. I don't remember if this includes the Listopia. It includes adding the books to a Reading List.

Hi! I must be doing something wrong. I've been using the reading list plugin for months to sync with my Note9 and Fire tablet (using calibre Companion). I've had no issues. But … (isn't there always a but?) I decided to clean up read books on my phone and deleted some epubs but when I next synchronized the books came back. Not sure which reading list setting is in error. I'd love to have some guidance as to what each setting does. Apologies if there is already a Wiki and I missed it.

Bcamp - I would guess that you probably have "Sync to this device..." checked for your list, but don't have "Clear this list after a sync..." checked. But that, as it says, clears the list each time.

If you want to use the same list for multiple devices, I think you need remove those books from the list before you sync.

The options to look at are:

- "When syncing this list": There are several options. I suspect you have one of the options that update all the books.
- "Sync to this device as soon as it is connected": Just whether to do the sync immediately. Turning it off when having problems is a good idea.
- "Clear this list after a sync to this device": This will empty the list after the sync is done.

For me, I use the reading lists as a way to collect books to be added to the devices. I have the last two turned on and the first set to "Add/Overwrite all list items on the device". And I have a list for each device. That way, when I get a new book, I decide which devices it goes to and add the book to those lists. When I connect the device, the books automatically go there and the list is cleared.

My guess is that you intend the list to be a list of all the books on the device. And it is automatically syncing all books to the device when it is connected. If, so, turning off the "Sync to this device as soon as it is connected" option is probably enough to solve the problem.

Thanks to you both! I had been trying to keep track of what was on each device so was not clearing the lists after sync. By adding a column for each list which is updated for add and remove I see now I can achieve what I want and still clear the list after sync. I'll play with the "Sync to this device as soon as it is connected" option as well.

Again, thanks for the very quick help!

Printing a Reading List??

Is there any way to print one of the Reading Lists?
I've created one for my wife that holds all the books she'd like to read in the future.
The only way I can work out how to print it, is to copy the list to a temporary library, then close Calibre and use calibredb --list to print from the temporary library.
Is there a smart, more integrated way of doing this?

The Catalog (right click the conversion icon) respects the current search/VL view. You can create a number of book type formats or a CSV (no direct print or PDF option)

Thanks, @theducks! That's a lot easier than my clunky method!
Thank you!
