Why in the books categorisation is it Fiction & Poetry as one? Seems a bit broad, surely poetry can have its own category but we can have fiction on it's own for general fiction books.

Thanks for the feedback, I agree that it is a bit broad, do you think we should have a general fiction option? Or do you think that fictitious books should fit into the other categories? Would love to hear what you think :)

For the large part I think it is generally clear what is and isn't fiction. However in some instances being able to just tag something as fiction or non-fiction may help. For example with Crime, there are a lot of books that are crime fiction but it is helpful to distinguish from all the crime non-fiction (there isn't a True-crime category.) As you can put in place 3 categories for each book having a plain Fiction tag shouldn't prevent additional categorisation. Just feels silly if you want to add the Fiction tag it also says poetry, when it may be some grim serial killer story.
