In my study I have a great collection of books of fine literature and pop fiction alike. Looks like Posling the Poltergeist has broken into my study and pulled another one of his practical "jokes".
It appears that Posling has scrambled up all of the letters and characters in my books! Some are only mildly scrambled, and others are much worse.
Fortunately, the scramblings were only done sentence by sentence. Listed below are the opening sentences for various books.
Can you help me reconstruct each of the sentences and identify the books?

- Each sentence is the first sentence of a book. The amount of each letter/character in each scrambled sentence is the same as in the original sentence (unless I made a mistake -- nevertheless, it should be close).
- Each book can be done as an independent puzzle. Try as many as you can -- even if you can only figure out one book, you are still encouraged to post an answer.
- Computer/programming aid might be helpful, but I think all of these are doable by a clever person
- Post the unscrambled sentence and the corresponding book title for each book you solve.
