Is there a best practice for naming books that come in a series? What is the best practice keeping things straight?
Dilemma #1: The book publication dates don't match the Chronological order of the action in the story.
Dilemma #2: It sure would be nice to be able to view the books in chronological order (of the action within the series) on my storage device (in my case a Kindle) Note: I am using Calibre for managing my storage.
Example, the Jack Reacher series from author Lee Childs, sorted alphabetical by title:
61 Hours (Jack Reacher Chron Order #15)
The Affair (Jack Reacher Chron Order #2)
Bad Luck and Trouble (Jack Reacher Chron Order #12)
Die Trying (Jack Reacher Chron Order #4)
Echo Burning (Jack Reacher Chron Order #7)
etc... There are more than 20 books in this series...) This just feels clumsy.
What is the best practice for file / title naming scheme here? Is there a "standard" here? What does everybody else do? Is there a way to easily display all the books in a series in the chronological order of the action within?
