Just Lost New Collections I created

Really bizarre! I created several new small book collections for my 2024 reading. All books were in my library this morning and I created new ones from there.

I then created 2 cover images for my 2 new collections, which I the inserted into my current post

I then had a question about one of the two new collections and when I went to bring it up the collection wasn't on my full list! I then went to a book that I added to the collection and the library said that collection wasn't there.

What gives?

I just exported my full library and the collections aren't there.

Is anyone there?

It would help a lot if we knew what collections you are missing, and what books were associated with them.

I do not understand "I then created 2 cover images for my 2 new collections," Collections do not gave covers, books do.

>2 MarthaJeanne: The 2 collections were 2024 Books Read, and 2024 DNF books.

I created an image for each collection of books by displaying covers for each collection in Your Books

I then used the gallery to create an image for the books in each collection. These images are the collection name with the numbers 02-15 on the names.
I just verified that these 2 images are still there.

When I look at the full list of my collections neither one is there. What is there is an older collection named 2023 Books. I renamed that as 2024 Books before adding books to each collection. The 2023 name as it existed is still called 2023, and not the renamed 2024.

The images in my thread provide the names of the books involved. When I go to one of those books it doesn't show them belonging to a new collection.

This whole thing looks like the library in the list of the books have regressed to what it was before I created these collections, but not before I used the gallery to insert the pictures there.

I obviously can create the collections again with a couple of hours of work but I need to know why this regression happened.
