Alphabet VBB round 14 (international), moving, still open for sign up

This is round fourteen of the alphabet VBB (international), with the title of each book starting (ignoring 'a' and 'the') with a different letter of the alphabet.

Participants can select any book(s) but must replace either the letter they've taken or one of the missing letters. I don't want to make it too difficult so there are 19 books, so that if you take one, you have a choice of 8 letters for the replacement. So if the list contained books beginning with letters A, B, C, and you chose the book beginnining with B, you could replace with a book beginning with B or with any letter D to Z.

Please put in the same number of books as you take out. The list is starting out as mainly fiction but other categories that you think will be appealing are fine (please no text books, religious pamphlets, travel guides, etc).

Please post choices and receipt of books to the thread.

Please post out books promptly. If any books are not received within a reasonable timeframe please let me know.

This is a new thread for round fourteen. The round thirteen thread is here:
