I am getting frustrated with the way that iTunes is handling my books/epubs and I am wondering how you are doing it. I have my preferences set up to organize my library and for my music, it is done by Artist -> Album -> <Track #> <Track Title>. Works well and keeps things grouped.

For books, I have whole series by a particular author and want to keep them together and in order. So following the same notion as above, I put the Author in Artist, Title in Title, Series in Album and the number in the series in Track #. But all this does is give me Artist/Author -> <Track #> <Title>. So if I have an author with several series, I have a bunch of "01 Title for Series 1" and "01 Title for Series 2". No real organization. So it seems books ignore Albums for organizing.

Is there another or better way?

I'm getting close to finding a different tool for organizing my epubs and then just move to iTunes when I want to get them on my iPad, but what a pain in the butt that would be.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
