You can add books to your shortlist if you expect to access them frequently. You can easily and quickly search for any book by name or in alphabetical order of title/author. I suspect that more categories will just add clutter. Why would I actually need to access books by category when I have a shortlist? I have no desire to obsessively categorize my ebooks on the KT. I'm only reading a few at a time, and when I'm finished I'm done with them. I doubt I'll ever have more than a few reference books that I'd want to access frequently on the KT, or ones I want to remember (to let someone else read them, for example), and I can put those on my shortlist.
What if I don't know the title or author? I simply know that I would like to read a medical thriller or a legal thriller, and I have distinct collections of each. I can't put anything on my shortlist if I don't know exactly what I'm looking for. If you have a sizable library, present sorting capability isn't enough.
