Ok, so I'll start with a couple random quotes about books and reading in general that approximate my reason for buying, keeping, and/or reading good books:

"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it." ~P.J. O'Rourke

"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." ~Oscar Wilde

"I divide all readers into two classes; those who read to remember and those who read to forget." ~William Lyon Phelps

"An ordinary man can... surround himself with two thousand books... and thenceforward have at least one place in the world in which it is possible to be happy." ~Augustine Birrell

About my library in particular:

I have three large shelves in my office/library/study packed with a majority of my books. The far right is my "Celestial" shelf with my religous books mainly. The middle is my "Terrestrial" shelf with my History, Journalism, Philosophy, Science, and some fiction. The far left is my "Telestial" shelf with all my favorite fiction.

I've also got two medium shelves at work that house some books on finance and my Library of America collection.

I go back and forth between wanting to buy hardcover and paperback books.

I love the beauty of, and resolve it takes, reading a hardcover. However, the pragmatist and cheapskate in me gravitates to a book I can fold into my pocket and read until it falls apart without the feeling I tortured and killed kinfolk.

I generally avoid reading too much dime store trash, but occasionally a popular book or author comes out and I feel the need to just relax and play. It is the same impulse as comics on Sunday.

My simple tag tree:

1st: Hardcover/Paperback/Mass-market Paperback
2nd: Fiction/Non-fiction/Religion.
3rd A: >> if Fiction then century? then Type of Lit (aka African-American Lit, etc.)
3rd B: >> if Non-fiction then type (History, Biography, etc.) then other modifier.
3rd C: >> if Religion then area (LDS, Gnosticism, etc.) then other modifier.
4th: Condition (Lost, Loaned, etc) or other.
