Trying to give a group access to read document libraries but add/edit lists. Tried creating a custom permissions level for this but would only allow one or the other. How can I make this work?

I guess you want to give them access to read documents and add/edit list items ? – Mathematics Sep 20 '12 at 14:07

Break List inheritance, make 2 custom permissions level, one for Item level permissions and one for list level. For item level add read permissions only but for List level select add/edit permissions.

add users to both groups or however you want it :)
