Book titles with one letter missing

Think about a well-known book. Then think what its title would become if you removed just one letter.

For instance, Snow Falling on Cedars might become Sow Falling on Cedars – A wistful portrait of a time when pigs actually flew. [Credit: CBC2 Shift, August 2011]

Or Moby Dick might become Mob Dick – A private detective is blackmailed into working for a crime boss in 1949 Los Angeles. [Credit: Paul Cavanagh, just now]
