    Just found this Calibre and installed it... Is it correct, that I have to enter every single book on my computer separately? I have 2260 books....
    I have transferred my 341 novels from their folder, I see how to sort them, but i cannot seem to create a category, in this case "Belletristic"...?

    Maybe you mean this ?

    Code:
    You create new categories in the Tag Browser, that is the list of Tags in the bar on the left side of Calibre.
    
    At the bottom of this bar is a button ‘Configure’.
    
    Click that button and choose ‘Manage…’
    
    From the list select ‘User Categories’
    
    In the empty text box at the top type the name you want to give your Category. Then click the ‘+’ button
    
    Now you can add books by Author, Series, Publisher, or Tags from the selection on the left side. Use the drop down Category Selector to choose between these filters.

    No, not quite, but thank you.
    I wanted to delete all Tags, and replace them with my own. Which I have done in the meantime
