I thought this was possible, but can't find out how. Anyone have a clue?

Use this: http://www.librarything.com/import.php

Remember, though, to double-check after the import. Because the import is done by grabbing ISBNs, it will often cause books in the "recently released" and "recently caught" boxes to appear in your catalogue.

Yes, I found that link, but indeed it does include the recently caught and released stuff, and not all my books :(

Do all your books have ISBNs? Many of mine don't, and so could not be imported. However, it's at least a start!

Is there anyway to import just the PC ones?

I didn't know that Politically Correct was on offer for status!

Greetings everyone -- I just joined LT a couple of days ago, but I have been on BookCrossing for five years.

I tried the import function mentioned in this thread, but the function generated several ISBNs of books that I have never had. The only BC book I was able to pull into LT was one that I had released FOUR YEARS ago.

Is there anything else I should be doing? Thanks in advance!

That's probably because it will pull any book on the page that has an ISBN - including those in the "recently released" and "recently caught" boxes!

So is there any way to pull out a list of your own books? If not, then it doesn't sound as if the "universal import" feature is terribly userful.

Thanks for your help!

It's probably easier now that we have the option on BC to filter by "books in my possession" (that may be a "wings only" feature). You will still get those "recently caught/released" books, but you can just delete those from your catalogue, and you won't get any books that don't have an ISBN, because that's how the import function works. But it's better than nothing!

Is the import function still available for bookcrossing accounts?
