    I don’t know any of these but I’m going to guess Ted Williams for Non-Fiction.

      I think the card means “trading spaces” pretty literally.

    I think the first one is Cat in the Hat. Could be Green Eggs and Ham, I’m not sure.

    E. M. Forster is A Room with a View.

    Book Bag is definitely Anthony Bourdain. I’ve read one of his novels and it was just awful.
