Oh I see: you mean whether people prefer entering ISBNs or typing out
all the metadata by hand? Why isn't LibraryThing already a good test
that shows that people like to use ISBN lookup? And given the lookup can
work either way (from book details to ISBN or from ISBN to details),
what exactly would it mean if 2/3 were masochists who prefer hand entry
of book details?
