(example right click on a book and have a "add to group" option) if Calibre could do that, even by plugin, this this would be perfect/amazing for me.

Like FizzyWater, I don't use the tags provided by Amazon or any other metadata source. I set up tags which made sense to me and I apply them to books when I import them. I fooled around with Calibre for about a year, not really knowing what I was doing, then once I had figured it out and decided what I wanted to do, I started all over, importing the books once again and applying the organization that I had worked out.

Although I only read on my iPad (using Marvin), I do all the Calibre organization on my laptop (with the huge attached monitor), since it's so much easier to do that way.
