I have been working on a large family photo album using the book module in lightroom.  It has grown to 240 pages which is the limit that Blurb will allow.  I am not finished with my project.  I can't figure out how to take portions of the existing book and break it apart into several books.  Has anyone tried this?

There is no real easy way, but I can suggest this-

1) Be sure you are working from a 'Saved Book Collection' (in the Collections panel - Note the 'Book' icon!)

2) [Right-Click] the Saved Book Collection and choose [Duplicate Book]

Now you have two identical Book Collections to work with  - Original-A and Copy-B

3) Open {Original-A} and delete pages 120-240

4) Open {Copy-B} and delete pages 1-119

Thus you have two 'smaller' books to work with. (Slight modifications will be required)

5) You can Rename the two (or more) of the 'copies' to represent your book 'Chapters' with a descriptive name. (Part-1 Part-2, Part-3, etc)
