You are very witty.
For me, I understand that if I tag it "books" then there is some degree of bibliophilia to the book that has been tagged. For instance, I tagged The Thirteenth Tale and The Club Dumas with Books. The first one is about a woman who works in a bookstore, whose father is a rare/antique book dealer, and who is dictating the biography of an author. The latter of those is about a guy who works for others in acquiring the books of value they seek, and more specifically the plot revolves around 2 main books, one fictional one real.
And yet, the same tag is enough for both for me.
Ok,I know its unwieldy,but I like it.
I just use books and reading for all of the ones I want to keep together. I'll probably change it one day because it's not always completely accurate (if librarians are the main character, if a librarian wrote it, etc.) but it works for now.
Did Stout do this in other books that I have not noticed yet?
The same holds true for a slip-case and the books that belong inside. The case may or may not have an ISBN but it also gets a "z" as it is not a book, IMO. If it is entered in mylibrary and is not a book, it gets a "z" tag.
When I need/want a book count I can search on "z" and subtact that from the total entries in mylibrary.
With an author search, an entry with a "z" will also have the other tag and a click on that tag will bring up the real book/s and all the other entries within.
I started with "(not-a-book)" with the title. After a couple dozen that got old. Also didn't know what a search would do with that, so I removed it and used a z tag.
disclaimer added: Since this is Beta this may not work forever, or even now. :-)
From Wikipedia - 'Metafiction is a type of fiction that self-consciously addresses the devices of fiction. It is the literary term describing fictional writing that self-consciously and systematically draws attention to its status as an artifact in posing questions about the relationship between fiction and reality...metafiction does not let the reader forget he or she is reading a fictional work."
