What is a VLB genre?

The VLB (Verzeichnis lieferbarer Bücher) genre is a special classification created and catalogued by the Verband Lieferbarer Bücher in Germany. It is used to classify eBooks and other books into precise categories to make them easier to find and sell in various online stores, including Amazon's Kindle store.

By assigning your eBook to a specific VLB genre, it becomes part of a precise and comprehensive list of genres used by booksellers, publishers and online shops. These genres are organised by subject, genre or specific category, allowing readers and customers to search for books in their preferred genres.
When you publish your eBook on, you can select an appropriate VLB genre to place your work in the correct category. This ensures that it is easy for readers, booksellers and online shops to find and sell.
