GeekDad Puzzle of the Week – Disemvoweled Classics

Reading Time: 1 minute

Below, please find two dozen classic books and their authors. Each had been relieved of its standard vowels, and then had its remaining letters alphabetized (for your safety.)

This week’s GeekDad Puzzle of the Week is to attempt to reconstitute as many of them as you can.

For example, BCFHKLNNRRY by KMNRTW reconstitutes to Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain.
