Can you name the famous book?
Edit: I added the titles of the books in white font.


Those are all paraphrases of famous book titles. I haven't looked at the solution yet but managed to figure out all titles apart from Nr. 19 and 21 and I'm not 100% sure about 17. What about you? How many can you name? Please don't post all titles immediately, so others can have fun guessing as well. Either just write the number of the books you know or don't know or write your answers in white font, so others can't immediately see them.

They are funny! Shows that good titles matter!
I love no 7.

It seems that not many people are interested in this quiz. Therefore I added the solutions now for those who might have tried to figure the titles out but didn't comment. They are written in white font, so that they are hidden for those who still seek a challenge.
