About My Library
I have a lot of books and I use a lot of idiosyncratic tags. Here's a brief explanation; categories subject to change without notice:

ebook - epub or multiple formats
kindle - kindle version only

history - divided by subject area, usually academic press
historical fantasy - fantasy works heavily influenced by historical cultures
historical fiction - fiction set in historical periods
alt history - a world where one particular event changed history thereafter

feminist sf/f - speculative fiction written by self-identified authors; works that predominantly address gender, racial, social/cultural issues

lgbt - works addressing lgbt et al concerns, especially gender & sexuality; works by self-identified authors, fiction works featuring prominent lgbt characters & relationships

FN/NA - works addressing First Nation/Native American issues, themes and cultures; works by self-identified authors

WS - women's studies/history; women's spirituality

HC - hardcovers, so I know what bookcase to look on
trade - trade paperback fiction, also so I know where to look

collection - a collection of shorter works or short stories by a single author
anthology - a collection of shorter works or short stories by multiple authors
omnibus - a collection of larger, previously published single works

spec fiction - speculative works that lacks genre specificity

horror - works (usually with supernatural elements) that frighten or disturb; I tag contemporary vamp or werewolf books separately as very few manage to hit my fright button

sf/f - works (usually older) of speculative fiction that blur sf and f genre lines (eg. secondary world fantasy set on separate planets)

psi - mental stuff; telepathy, PK, precog et al

sf (science fiction) - works of futurism and/or works that require some degree of science or extrapolated science as a significant element

post apoc - aftermath of some great disaster

dystopia - someplace you really don't want to live

fantasy - works with fantastical elements, usually set in a secondary world

urban fantasy - fantasy (usually modern) where a particular city or urban environment plays a significant role in the story

contemporary fantasy - fantasy in the modern world

faerie - elves, fey, fairies, the Sidhe, or any variation or combination thereof

folklore - books regarding folk customs and belief

folk tale - folk collections; also speculative fiction involving folk customs, beliefs; retold stories

romance - characters' relationship is the driving force of the book
para romance - one or more of the major character is supernatural/magical

YA - young adult genre fiction
