Will it work with a CSV file from LibraryThing?

He'd have to answer for sure, but I'd say probably not.  The only way it would work is if LibraryThing exported in the exact same structure as GoodReads, which is a large improbability.

Never tried it, but I seriously doubt they're compatible.

In my OP, added a zipped attachment of the Visual Studio C# Project, for anyone who wishes to peruse the code and perhaps extend it.
