About my libraryI now have a pretty good chunk of the the books that I own listed. I haven't decided if I want to list large numbers of book that I don't own, but I have read. I may also use this as a wish list to replace my amazon wish list.
tags of note:
unowned: books I have read, but do not own
nonfiction: All nonfiction books are tagged as such.
fiction: Books that contain fiction and nonfiction (e.g Expanded Universe by R.A.H.) have both tags, pure fiction books do not have that tag.
not finished: An unfinished fiction or a nonfiction that I have not come close to finishing. Not used on e.g. technical books that you generally don't read every word of.
wishlist: Not used right now. If/when I use it, it means I do not own it and I want to own it. I may or may not have read it.
unread: To be read. Not used right now. If/when I use it, it means books I want to read, but have not. Says nothing about ownership or whether I want to own it.
