Do you tag? How do you tag? How do you feel about tagging- do you think it would be better to have standardized tags, like libraries have standardized subject headings, or do you like the individualized nature of tagging? What are your top 5 tags and what do they say about your collection or your reading habits?
Yes, I do tag every book. Sometimes I don't know how to tag them, so I look at how others have tagged that book and just copy those. I think some standard tags would be nice (such as TBR), but I do like the flexibility of it. However, I don't like how tags are apparently case-sensitive. I have had to go to the "Tags" tab and consolidate tags just because sometimes I write in upper-case and sometimes I write in lower-case. I think this is annoying.
My top five tags are:
Historical Fiction (287)
I think that says about me what most people already know- I love historical fiction, specifically that from the Georgian and Regency periods. And I also read a lot of fantasy. And have a lot of reading to go, obviously! One book at a time is all I can manage, though :-)
