How to metatag search.


First of all.. Great program.. Even if I do not have any reader yet (but I will soon).
I've started creating my library.

I have one major issue with downloading the meta with the button and it's pulldowns..

When the meta is screwed up with title and writer mixed up or that in the title are wrong characters it will not find anything.

And then I got thinking. Would it be wise to first search the ISBN database for references to the title, parts of it or writer, display those, and then from the list make a selection and update the meta information?

This list is shown per book, and you can browse through all the selected books by pagination. It is moments like this I hate the fact i'm not a good enough programmer to just make stuff like that.

If you want an example on what I had in mind you can have a look at what I use to manage my music. A nifty program called Helium Music Manager.

Hope you understand what I mean, and that this could be a great asset to the program.
