I didn't try The Lord of the Rings because the description said no series...

The Lord of the Rings is one book, actually. It just got published in three volumes so that they could space the book out over a few years (this was back in the paper shortages around WWII that made the massive book being published all at once a bad idea). So I don't think you need to worry about changing it. Good quiz too, I was surprised at how many of these I'd never heard of before.

yes, expand it. I tried the Fellowship of the Ring. If you're going to say no series, I would at least accept the individual book titles.
