Series within a series of books

I have a very large school reading list (300+ ebooks) that span grades K through 12 reading levels (this is part of our homeschool curriculum). All of these ebooks are in my calibre library. I would like to number them from 1 through 300-something so we have a quick way in calibre to pull up the next book on the reading list for each child.

I would normally create a series and order them that way. BUT... many of these books are already in a series of their own which I've already entered into calibre. Is there another way to order these books without disrupting the smaller series? Can a secondary "series" column be made somehow?

Custom Column: Text Column with series like information

Or simply a Numeric column if the Library needs one group.

Also, review the 'Reading List Plugin', in the Plugins section here, to see if that meets a need
