'twas actually quite easy for me to do, since I keep a list of all my books, and my recent reads:
recent @
collection @

I ended up alphabetizing by first author's first name, and then by either title or series order. This way, it's easier to see groups by the same author, and figure out which books in a series are listed. (I know, I should've gone by last name, but the search-replace-sort was much easier by first.)
