You are dragging them from an Explorer window, right? Try
reversing the name sequence in Explorer by clicking on the
Name header before you select them. When I do that here, I
get them added to the book in the same order as in the
Explorer window, regardless of how I select them (click/
shift-click or multiple ctrl-clicks).
