This list is of recommendatory nature, not normative one. Pointing out that some books appeal more to boys/girls doesn't make it segregationist or sexist. It simply acknowledges the fact that we do have two sexes and that children more often then not have different interests based partially on the them. Nobody's suggesting a boy cant read Sophie´s World.
No need for such indignation. It's just another list.
