    I saw this on Facebook. It's called "Ruin a Book in One Letter." To play the game, take a book title and change one letter to change the title/meaning of the book. Here are a few examples.

    "Where the Wild Things Are" becomes "Where the Mild Things Are"
    "Last of the Mohicans" becomes "Lass of the Mohicans" or,
    "Last Off? The Mohicans" (a Bus Story)
    "The Count of Monte Cristo" becomes "The Count of Monte Crisco"
    "Gone With The Wind" becomes "Gone With The Mind" (an elder memoir)

    Here are couple of mine:

    Nine, Ten, Eighty-Four (a Quarterback's Story)
    Mess of the d'Urbervilles

    Ready. Set. Go.
