The first thing I tried to do with Bookle was to drag 28 ePubs to the Library list in the Bookle window. This fails on 2 counts:
- dragging to the library, expected functionality, does not work, instead you have to find a Bookle icon and drag to that; and dragging to the coverflow version of the icon doesn't work either.
- Dragging multiple ePubs results in only one being imported.

Just an additional note that when I tried dragging multiple ePub files onto the dock icon it only imported one for me as well, however I have been able to import more than one file at a time on other attempts so I'm not positive what happened. I wouldn't think it would matter, but for reference I have Yoink installed but didn't use it as part of the import.
I drug 1397 epub files onto the Bookle icon and it imported them. It took it quite a while, but it did it.
@Peter, can you send me the file at email@example.com so we can see what might be tripping Bookle up? I've seen some pretty weird EPUBs, and it's possible that it's just a corrupt file that's confusing the code in some bad way. Or perhaps we're just doing something wrong. :-)
@Diane, you're absolutely right, and the initial spec called for the drop into the window; just had to postpone to get 1.0 out the door. It will happen.
I can get Bookle to hang (and need a force-quit) by trying to import one of my books (which, admittedly, is rather large at 4.7MB). This happens no matter which way I try to import it.
@Adam - dock icon is not an easy target for everyone. 27" monitor, many items in dock = tiny icons.
We definitely plan to add the capability of dragging to the Bookle window (or perhaps the Library list); that was just postponed from 1.0. The easiest target should be the Dock icon once Bookle is running, rather than trying to hit the icon in the Applications folder.
As far as importing multiple EPUBs at once, yes, it should do that.
