Hi folks, is there a way to convert all your books tagged X to a collection called X?

Yes.

First step is to create the new collection you want.

Next step is to go to your tag page and click on tag X.

Then switch to lightning/power mode and choose "add to collection" (select all). Pick the new collection, and you're done. You could delete the tag if you wanted to.

I did this recently and it was super easy.

Power Edit has lots of great tricks - poke around while you're doing this task and see some of the other options.
