The idea is pretty good and I'm sure an experienced teacher or librarian could take the documents and use them, but there are some things missing that could make it better.  The sheets reference a "list of genres and definitions", which is not provided. It would also be very helpful if some teacher's notes were given, such as a timeframe for the exercise (is it homework?, an in-class exercise?), a sample decision-making process showing what to do to find a book to fit a category (rely on a catalog with categories?, read it?, clues from book jackets, summaries, chapter titles?).  It is also not clear what the learning objective of the exercise is, beyond the obvious one of getting students to handle books (a view of the universe of books beyond what they may have previously experienced?, a lead-in to choosing a book to read and report on?)

Technical Remarks:

The pdf did open a page with links, but not pdfs of the sheets themselves?
