I love the way the magazines on my Nook HD+ and Nook Color go into collapsing menus, where I just set one entry for the magazine and I tap it, and I see all of the magazines.
I think it would be nice if there was an option on the library screen to turn that on for authors and/or series. Personally I'd like it for both, and I'd probably go back and forth between the two views and normal view, but I'd be happy with either.
Reasons for this are
- it would make scrolling through the library screen easier, because there'd be less of it, and fewer things to trip up your fingers. Large libraries, especially, can already take a while to load.
- in some ways, it could reduce the need for my own shelves, by making things easier to find, and in ways it's possible people might shelve them.
- it would make it much easier, to see, at a glance, if there are certain books by an author, or in a series, that I'm missing. Sometimes, when you're looking at your library there's too much other stuff around to make it easy to focus on what's not there, or some series books are written by different authors, and sorted differently, even if you sort by author.
- it could make it easier for archving and/or assigning to profiles if you could send entire stacks to the archive or to the desired profile (this person can read everything by Gaiman, or archive all the Harry Potter books) instead of needing to select each book individually. I know this isn't a current functionality of the collapsing menus as they are, but it would be a nice addition.
