CreaB used one custom column to add a genre and you ?

Thanks in advance. It will help to better test the code before releasing it.
I've used custom columns for the "page count" before. This is a little bit of extra information that I would like to include under the book details.

Another way I could use a custom column would be for the "type" of ebook. For example I would have: comic, book, magazine, journal and newspaper. This is a similar use as having a "genre", but could be used in conjunction. My comics often have the same genre as some of my books, but I want them to be listed separate.

I'd say I have a moderate level of interest in having this feature.
