Sorted by place of purchase, stored in the cloud, a backup of this file kept on a different cloud.

On my reader I use shelves, organized by genre and / or author.

My books on my Kindle are organized exactly the way you do it. It's more manageable and easier to find a book that way than having to scroll through a long list.

Calibre library in Dropbox organized by author and series. On my Kindle in collections of Authors's names with a few in general genres. My one wish is that the collections were alphabetical instead of by last opened. Better yet I wish I could choose how I wanted my collections sorted.

I bought a cheap nook STR from Radio Shack and I cannot use Calibre to manage collections. Also, the fonts are lighter then on my 650. I'm serious considering returning it.
I don't bother with Collections on my Nook STR & Glow. Use calibre's save template for send to device to organize your books into folders based on your existing tags /columns / series and then browse them on your Nook using My Files. Here's a post with further explanation.

After disinfecting them, I'll assign genre & series tags, as well as editing covers if missing.

Yep, I do the same. Calbre with a sprinkling of Alf is one of those tools I cannot go without when it comes to ebooks and reading.

This exactly.

On my kindle I have 5 folders: "Modern and Classic Lit", Mystery & Thriller", "Nonfiction", "Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror" and "Favorites". The odd YA, western, historical fiction, etc. I'll stash in one of those folders. The books I'm currently reading plus the next few I want to read are kept outside of those folders.

I use Calibre to manage my books including using tags to set up the collections on the Sony. I use the Reading List plugin in Calibre to send the books and get the books off of the device.

I made my own software, as i need to put my books where I want them, not where some software decides to put them.
I sometimes have different version of a book, i keep just in case (minor edits usually).

Folder sometimes author name, name of the series, and an "other" folder.

Calibre library in Dropbox, and the local Dropbox folder is backed up by Carbonite. I keep only unread books and a few favorites and reference books on my Kindle, loosely organized into collections. With the Calibre library in Dropbox, I can download any book from that anytime via the Kindle web browser, as long as I have internet access.

Who does NOT use Calibre?

For people who read more than a handful of books a year, programs such as Digital Editions are very inadequate.

Calibre is fantastic.

I used to work in a library so I have a "Fiction01" folder on my hard drive where I have sub-directories by author <last name>, <first name>. Every few months I take my un-sorted folder and organize things by dropping the various files into the author directories.

I have imported some of these into Calibre which is a great program, but I have not made it my central repository of all things yet.

I have ... 2 main e-readers. The kindle I share with my wife, daughter, mother and mother-in-law. A semi-steady diet of Pratchett, Reichs, Brown, etc. go here. All the popular/best sellers are on the Kindle.

The PC files I blip over to my Nexus 7 where I read using Moon+ Pro. The initial load of 150 books has been whittled down since Christmas, but I still have months of reading to do before I am ready to transfer new files. The PC files are back-fill of my SciFi library, Military, some technical and some like "Fifty Shade of Grey" which might make for awkwardness at the next family gathering.

Tech Note: I use an On-The-Go cable and "Nexus Multimedia Importer" to import files from a flash drive. No need to root my Nexus tablet. One file I wanted on the nexus was simply sent to "MyDrive" on my gmail account and copied down by the gmail client on the nexus.

BACKUPS

I have not quite filled up 4.6 gigs of space in my "fiction01" folder, but when I do I will start a new "Fiction02" parent folder. I occasionally burn a DVD and make a backup.

I probably should sign up for cloud backup because I know eventually this HDD will fail. But I buy Western Digital Black edition hard drives and the hard drives tend to last longer than the PC so I just pull the HDD, and hook it to another computer to recover my files. In .. 20 years I have never actually lost anything on a hard drive.
