to have it looked at.
Curious. I put a test book in my second library that created using the method quoted below. The tag browser seemed to be behaving just fine when I switched between librarys via the Welcome Wizard. The numbers were appropriate for each library.
I can't use Jumplist because I'm still running XP and will be for a while (sniff, sniff).

It will look like you still have the same books - delete them - they aren't really there. Now add any books you want into this new library. (I'd still use the virtual library method, but it's up to you.) You can use the Wizard to switch back and forth within seconds after you have it set up.
