I suspect that "Princess Ben" has a typo in the classification and actually belongs in PZ rather than RZ....

Mar 21, 2013, 5:57pm Top

Very possible - I have been checking through odd classifications ... will take me forever!

Apr 7, 2013, 6:58pm Top

I've finished going through my books and checking suspect classifications. I updated a couple of categories and have read two books in the "z" category.
Think I'll work on "m" and "s" next.
