How do we choose between लंबी है and लंबी होती है?

You use होती when you are making generalizations or talking about something that is universally true. For example, when you say किताबें लम्बी होती हैं, you mean that all books are long or that books, in general, are long. Without the होती, you would be talking about a particular set of books.
