Ok, I'll Play

There's a trending topic on Twitter today (I know, the second Twitter-inspired post in as many days) that is #bookswithalettermissing. The idea is to remove one letter from a book title and then give a one-sentence blurb of the reimagined work. There have been some funny ones. I can't resist! I love words and word games, so I went to my own book shelf and came up with the following:
The Itch of Blackbird Pond - An outbreak of hives cripples a small community
No Shame, No Ear - an unauthorized biography of Vincent Van Gogh
Lice in Love and War - a treatise on the impact of parasites in human history
The Log Winter - Tales from a lumber camp
Ever 1793 - Science-fiction time warp tale
Where the Lilies Loom - Another science-fiction tale set in a valley of overgrown vegetation
The First for Years - The romantic tale of a woman's return to dating

Ok, ok, I'll restrain myself! Can you come up with some?

One of my favorite books of all time, "We Speak No Reason." It's about...well, I'll tell you later because I wouldn't want to inject politics into a blog about books. LOL

LOL, Ephemera! I need to read that book (the real one, not the political one).
