    I have a fairly large number of ebooks and would like to categorise them by both Author and, where applicable, series. For example Issac Asimov and then the foundation series.

    Is it possible to nest collections within the bookshelves?

    Of course.....

    In iBooks, press 'Edit', then touch the books you want to move into a single collection.

    When you've done that, press 'Move' then 'New' and give the (new) folder a name.

    All those books will move into that folder as part of a 'Collection'.

    You can move books between folders, too, using the same technique.

    Hi Tim

    Thanks for your response. Obviously I didn't make myself clear.

    I have a collection titled "books", into which all my new acquisitions are put. I have now made a second collection titled "Issac Asimov" and put all of his books there, giving me two collections. What I would like to do is to create another collection, for arguments sake call it "foundation series" which would be hived off of the Issac Asimov" collection and not be seen if the general collection button is pressed. Re-reading this it still seems vague.

    I suppose in computing terms I really want a folder heirachy, but using "collections.

    Regards

    AFAIK, there's no way to nest in Collections.
