Is there anything to say or do if you accidentally drop a sefer on the floor, besides kissing it and putting it back?
*not a sefer Torah, ch"v!

Mishna Brura סימן צו ס"ק ז:
" נפל ספר על הארץ ואינו יכול לכוין מותר להגביהו כשיסיים הברכה שהוא עומד בה ואי לא"ה לא יפסיק ".
It says that only if you can't keep on focus the prayer you need to pick it up immediately, but by the way we learn that you should pick it up immediately if it's not during a prayer. To kiss it is a 'Hidur'.
BTW, Sefer Hasidim says that if you drop a few books together you should pick the all and only then start kissing them one by one.
Apart from these I dont know any action that you should do. Maybe hold books tighter :)
Hope it helps
