THE SOUND AND THE FURY by William Faulkner would be stacked with the CDs and Cassettes as an Audiobook.

A friend of ours was in a hurry to get books for his parents in law for Christmas a couple of years ago. The mother in law loves her garden so he choose "The perfumed Garden" thinking it was a garden book.
She would love to fly some place for vacation, but the father in law is afraid of flying so the man got him "Fear of Flying" thinking it was a psychology book.

It is said that the Chilean military, at the time of the coup, burned books on Cubism (perhaps misshelved under "Marxism and Communism").

@boomerang,
On some level, it makes sense they'd see missionary on the back jacket of the Poisonwood Bible and put it under religion/spirituality.
