Birthday Brain Benders

In honor of today being the B-leb birthday, and because I'm once again too lazy to post something worthwhile, I'm just going to put up a couple of brain teasers in case you're bored and haven't seen these before. Be careful when reading any comments, as they may contain the answers. Hope you have fun.

Codes:

See if you can figure out how to decode the following messages. They all translate into, "All codes lead to Rome." As an example, to decode message #1, just move each letter back one space in the alphabet. The rest are much more difficult. (In case you're curious, I was able to get all but #5 in the time it takes me to go poo. So if you get #5, that means you're smarter than me. If you don't get the others, you're dumber than me.)

1) BMM DPEFT MFBE UP SPNF.
2) ZOO XLWVH OVZW GL ILNV.
3) AEL ALDCT OODR EO SMLE.
4) ACE ETOLO SAOM LD LDRE.
5) HPR URWGD HOVH GR FOOD.
6) AMN FSIKZ TNKO FB FDCV.


Bookshelf:

Pretend the following titles are on a bookshelf. You have to rearrange them so that the last letter of each title is the first letter of the next title. The last letter of the last title can be anything. The first and last title must begin with the same letter. Go.

1) Nerves
2) Respect
3) Ribbon
4) Shout
5) Titan
6) Tower

Um...I'm pretty sure that second puzzle is impossible.

Nope, definitely not. If you really want one, I can give a clue.

I guess I just don't get how the game works.

Oh wait. Nevermind. I just got it. I thought the words were supposed to stay in the same order and you had to scramble the letters. Now that I see you can move them around, it makes sense.
