Library Thing Tuesday (5)

Today's Tuesday Thingers question is:

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 didn't start tagging immediately. But after I read somewhere that the Early Reviewer formula might possibly like tags, I began to tag in earnest. I actually find it quite useful. I have tags for ARCs, signed books, various genres, favorite books and the 1001 Books to Read before you die that I have read (among others). It makes it very easy to sort my books and find what I am looking for.

My current top 5 tags are 1001 Books (113), Literary Fiction (90), Classic (76), YA (42), Dystopia (26). I think it does pretty accurately reflect my reading habits.

And now for the latest priceless picture of Miss Emmy - just hanging out:

What a great photo! Miss Emmy is beautiful and I love that sleeping pose. Haha

I'm still trying to find my tagging style. It's been interesting reading how others tag. I'm taking notes!

I started tagging because of ER, too! As soon as I did, I got my first ER book...soo...maybe it worked?

I just love that photo - what a pose! I must think about adding the 1001 Books tag.

I've just thought of a tag I haven't used so thanks, I need to tag those books I'm reading for my 50 book challenge.

Dystopia - I like that. What an interesting tag. I will be visiting that list. It's been quite some time since I've read Animal Farm. In this day and age, it seems rather appropriate.

Aw too cute! I also started really making an effort to tag when I heard about the ER algorithm, but I'm glad I did!

I trust you have a copy of Arukiyomi's spreadsheet if your top tag is 1001 books...
