I only download books that I find out and will be reading so generally know what way I will categorize a book cant help you with that. Although selecting prefer fewer tags and restrict number of tags to download 1 or 2should make them manageable for you
Thanks. Will make a coffee and try that now. Snow outside so a good day to do it
Was given lots of free epubs so don't know what lots of them are yet.
By the does changing the metadata not affect the book when I add it to my ereader?
