How does Calibre assign 'Book' vs. 'Personal Doc' for Kindle?

Is this something I can set?

It used to be -- last February/March/April/May -- that all of my Calibre-converted stuff was just called 'Personal Docs', even if they were books. Now they're kind of half & half. I would love to be able to tell my Kindle where to place my transferred material.

This blend of document types might become even more complicated once Amazon has introduced its means of organizing books on Kindle.

Thank you!

If you convert a regular ebook to mobi it's marked as a Book.
If you create a periodical from a recipe, it's marked as a Subscription.
If you create a catalog from your collection, it's marked as a Subscription.

This makes things consistent with how Amazon tags their books.

Any other type of ebook - PDF, TXT, HTML - would be shown in the Personal Docs section, but this is handled on the Kindle, not as a result of how the file is marked.
