Plug in to replace tags from title database?

Here's the situation: my Kindle has many books in no particular order.
They are split into collections by number of books to make them manageable.

I would like to make new collections based on what type of book they are, like
Mystery, biography, self-help, politics, etc etc.

Anyone here know if there is a way to automatically change all the tags in a collection of books, based on the title?

I don't have much experience with Kindles... but I suspect you might find what you need in Calibre - google it, it's free.

But hopefully someone with more specific knowledge will give you a more detailed reply.

indeed you can use Calibre with the "Kindle Collections" plugin
