    Shoot. Forgot to get in early. Not reading other comments:

    Children’s: The Stinky Cheese Man

    Classics: 8? Just a guess, but it’s the first number that jumped into my head.

    Non-Fiction: Mr. Spy and I were just talking about this. Tom Wolfe.

    Book Club: Philip Roth.

    Authors: No idea. But I’m going to guess that it’s only slightly less than Frankenstein’s height in feet.

    Book Bag: Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert. I’ll guess Stewart.
