WORDY WEDNESDAY #221
LETTER LENDING LIBRARY
(A sequel to WW198.)
These words are lending their letters out for you to read. Write the clued 6-letter words in column A. Then drop one letter from each word and rearrange the rest to get a 5-letter word that goes in column B. Drop one more letter and rearrange what's left to get a 4-letter word to write in column C. The words in column C are clued in order, but you must determine where the words go in the other columns.

The letters thus dropped, reading down the leftmost column and then the rightmost column, will spell the final answer, a book title.
COLUMN A
* Attempts
* Desires what someone else has
* Least feral
* “Of ____!” (phrase uttered by M. Bison in a meme)
* Small magnifiers
* Tailor’s need
* Whitaker in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
* Word before “engine” or “party”
COLUMN B
* A doctor measures it in beats per minute
* Circulatory system features
* Fox in the Sonic the Hedgehog games
* “Hardware ____” (Weird Al song)
* “I ____ It Through the Grapevine”
* Not glossy
* Scorches
* Wake up
COLUMN C
1. ____ grinder
2. Simba’s uncle
3. ____ cream
4. Series of items
5. Tool with jaws
6. Certain lagomorph
