Tuesday Thingers

Today's question is about tags- 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?

I do tag books that I've read in my library with descriptions about the books subject. I also tag books that are in my library that I want to read as "wishlist". I don't really think we need standardized tags because there are so many tag options that someone may think of a ag for a book that no one else would, but is still a good tag.

My top 5 tags are:

read years ago - This indicates to me that I didn't read the book in 2007 or 2008.

wishlist - Books on my list to buy and read

read in 2007 - Self explanatory

own? - Books I have read but I can't find in my library

motherhood - Books about life as a mother

You have a diverse set of top tags. :)

It's interesting to see how your cataloging preferences (in terms of what you include in your library) is sort of showcased in your tags. It brings two of the Tuesday Thingers weeks together! :)

I like the idea of tagging your tbr's as "wishlist"- it makes it seem less intimidating! :-)

I'm all for personalized tags too :)
