When I retired three years ago after 45 years of working, I got serious with solving crossword puzzles. From my local newspaper I solve five easy puzzles every week, along with three large, complex puzzles. I save extras of the complex ones to work on again in three or four months.
But it's never enough puzzles! So, I buy puzzle books now. Not just ANY puzzle books, either! Will Shortz has provided us with many wonderful crossword puzzles in The New York Times as well as in books that we can buy and take on trips with us. So it is with me! I have two of his special crossword books and the latest one is "Weekend in the Country Crossword Puzzles" published by The New York Times. There are 200 puzzles in this book. It is filled with a variety of puzzles according to their difficulty in solving. The categories are keyed with stars. The "Monday" puzzles are the easiest with one star. "Tuesday" puzzles are keyed with two stars--Wednesday, 3 stars, Thursday, 4 stars, Friday, 5 stars, and finally on Saturday, 6 stars. And yes, the 6-star puzzles are really hard to solve.
I highly recommend this crossword puzzle book to all serious and not-so-serious crossword puzzlers out there.
