Hi all! New to this site and dont quite understand the difference between Tagging a book, putting a book on my wish list or using 'a reminder'....help!? :))- Thanks everyone!
All this information was found by browsing the help center above. You might want to go there and do some reading.
your Wish List is the list for all books that are currently unavailable to order in the system, that you want to request when they become available. Books that you are only considering requesting in the future should go on your Reminder List. You can see where you are "in line" for a book on your Wish List by placing your cursor over the ! next to the Wish Date of any item in the list.
Book tags are words and short phrases that describe a book. When used cooperatively (in a club-useful fashion) by members, tags provide a wonderful method of discovery for books. Tags can also be used personally, in a way that is useful to only one (or a few) members. Sometimes members use tags inappropriately, and inappropriate tags should be removed. Read on to learn what makes a tag inappropriate and how you can help eliminate inappropriate tags.

There is also a new option, a memo that I've seen referred to as a reminder or sticky. It is a personal tag that shows up only on your page of a book. So all the personal tags can be removed. Haven't used it or see it, but it was mentioned on one of the clean up posts.
From What's new page
Book Notes allow you to write a private (only you can see it) note on any book in the database. No matter where you are on the site when you apply the note, you will see the note everywhere you see the book.
To apply a note to a book:
To read your note:
To edit your note:
To remove/delete a note:
What can the notes be used for? Whatever you like. No one else can see them.
