How to find, in library, books similar to one on device?

In device view, I see a book not in my library.
Now I want to look in my library and see if I have another copy of the same book, or other books by the same author, or ....

I tried to select the author/title to copy to the clipboard, so I could then search in library view, but I can't.

I tried adding "Similar books..." to the context menu, thinking it would create a search I could then use in library view, but "Similar books..." doesn't work in device view.

I can remember the author, switch to library view, and type it in, but I was hoping for something less dependent on my fat fingered typing and short term spelling memory

Is there another way?

You could right click on the book and add it to your library then go to your library view and search for "Similar books."
