Yes!

Barnes & Noble is the first bookseller to offer Lexile measures in their listings. Now when you catalog from B&N, Readerware can get the Lexile measure for you.

Update:  Amazon is now also including Lexile measures in their listings.

Readerware extracts the Lexile measure when cataloging from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. 
When using auto-catalog, include one or both of these sites and check the merge option, Readerware will then get the Lexile measure.

For books already in the database, you can use auto-update. Again select Amazon or Barnes & Noble and the Lexile Level column.

You can test Lexile extraction using drag & drop with this B&N link.

You cal also drag & drop this Amazon link.
