Years ago, after much effort, I had worked my way up to being able to solve NY Times crosswords correctly for any day of the week. Then sudoku puzzles appeared and I became addicted to them. For Years. To the Exclusion of All Other Puzzles. What was I thinking???
The problem with sudoku versus crosswords is that while one strengthens your logical thinking, the other one strengthens your vocabulary, lateral thinking and all round knowledge of the world. So I decided to go back to crosswords to give my brain more rigorous exercise (I'm not abandoning sudoku completely). However, I was not able to perform at my previous level because I had fallen out of practice (crosswords are NOT like bicycle riding...you have to keep doing them to maintain your level of skill). So I got this book of Monday puzzles to work my skill level back up to NY Times Tuesdays, etc.
I like the size of this book...not too large so it fits in my satchel/tote handbags; not too small so I can read the clues and write in the grids. The paper is not too thin so my mechanical pencil does not puncture the page (the paper in monthly crossword mags is too thin). Pencil marks erase well on this paper. The cover is strong enough so it does not get torn like the covers of the monthly crossword mags. I stuff this book of puzzles in my purse as I take my mother to her round of doctors' appointments...it is just right for working on in a waiting room.
