If you are addicted to the NYT crossword puzzle, like I am, and one a day is just not enough, buy this book. The puzzles are from Monday-Saturday (you'll need a different book for the Sunday puzzles) and although they don't tell you which day the puzzle came from, you'll know once you start solving it. There are 4 puzzles per page, so if I'm going away, I usually tear out a few pages and take them with me. I usually go through crossword puzzle books quite quickly, but I've been working on this one for several months now!
