I will confess I haven't found a use yet for saved searches. I don't actually want to restrict my view of the library in normal day to day usage when I am adding new books and editing metadata. When you are trying to ensure no duplicates etc you can't use a restricted view.

What I do want to do is be able to build lists of series or authors that I intend to "revisit" in future. There is no meaningful "subset" that I could restrict my view to which reduces the authors down to a manageable level, given my favourite authors list for instance could include any one of them?

I understand I "could" construct my lists as a saved search by building monstrous "or" expressions, however this is pretty nasty to maintain and I think the "user categories" feature is better suited? Or am I missing something?
