Tom Is there any proctoring for this list?

The list name says 'non-fiction' but there are R.K.Rowling and J.R.Tolkien works on the list.

Librarians can remove books from lists. I've deleted some of the most obvious fiction, please let me know what I've missed.

Gabi Why is Upton Sinclair's The Jungle on here?
