Sorry, I think I can guess what that means, but, I'm not going to. Because if I get it wrong, we are all just wasting our time. Please explain in a reasonable amount of detail what you mean. Some examples would probably be a good idea.

That's fair. In the meantime, ridiculously enough, I figured out what I "wanted". So, starting from https://www.goodreads.com/genres/non-fiction I added to my spreadsheet all the "related genres" listed in that page. Same for https://www.goodreads.com/genres/fiction. And proceeded to use only those on my goodreads.json i.e. Fiction -> Fantasy.
In my mind, that gives me the genres at the 2nd level. I assume that's not fully accurate but is a good starting point for what I was trying to accomplish.
Long story short: from my point of view, Tags are "nice to have", Genres are "needed".

Just a comment: Currently, you cannot remove the goodreads id from the book window with the mouse right button even if the option is offered and you select it.

I might be stupid, but I can't seem to get Tags to work correctly. When I try to pull tags from the book, "The Highly Sensitive Child" for example, it pulls the following tags:Psychology, Self Help, Reference, Childrens
Yet, when I go to the Goodreads page, it has Parenting, Nonfiction, Psychology, Self Help, Education
I'm not sure where it is pulling the tags that it is currently getting, but how do I change it over to the genres?
Also, I am running on Linux Mint 20, Calibre 5.3.0 and the 1.5.1 plugin. I am betting that this is more user error than anything, but just wanted to see if anyone had an idea of what I was doing wrong.
Thanks!




UPDATE:
Nevermind! I found that the 'Parenting' genre wasn't listed in the mappings, so that expains why it never showed up.
