Books, articles, and other “printed” material

This page will be the top level for books, articles, and other “printed” (aka text based) material. The question is do I really need this page as a “middle manager” in a hierarchy, or can/should I just use tags on the pages and attribute filters in the shortcodes to have a single top level commonplace page. Do I need a parent page for each category of media?

Do I need to make this a parent page for the different type of text based media? Or just get creative with tags? How will it scale?
