Book Tags are short attributes that describe the book, the story line and the characters.
They serve two purposes. The first is to speed the process of reviewing a book. Instead of writing the leading male character is a singer in a rock band, you just checkmark the attributes – Singer, and Rock Star Romance.
The second purpose is to allow readers to find the perfect book. You can search for books that correspond to one or more book tags, and find exactly what you want to read.
There are currently more than 200 book tags. As much as I’d love to include every possible book attribute, this will complicate and slow down the tagging process. As a rule of thumb, book tags include qualities that readers are most likely to search for. If we take his or her profession as an example, I know it could be interesting to find books featuring a restaurant owner, but if we include every possible profession, the list of attributes will be too long.
Here is a snapshot of the current available book tags. You’re welcome to leave a comment if there’s something unclear or missing. Don’t forget to check out the list of tags added in the past few months.
FYI, Book tags were originally called book categories, so you may see this term used in older references.
