I was talking to this guy about books and he was like all, "Any standout collections?" as though that was a thing.
I think he was trying to sound 'smart,' but I've actually never really come across that phrase. Ever. He's addressing books as though they're postage stamps.

I would have thought it was charming if somebody asked me that. But I would have had to say, with a big smile, "Collections of what?"
That guy could be a collector himself and wonder what kinds of books you collect, if any. Or he could like anthologies. But there's nothing grammatically wrong with what he said.
You should post a question, "Any standout collections?" in that dude's honor. :)0
