Puzzle Books {Giveaway}

I’m one of those people that doesn’t like to just sit still and do nothing. Even when I’m watching TV I like to keep my mind busy. I love doing Sudoku puzzles because there is a box for every number and I know which steps I need to take to solve it.

I had a chance to review three puzzle books. The first was Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku. There are over 400 puzzles in this book so I know it will keep me busy for a long time. I easily figured out the first puzzles in the book and am looking forward to working my way through the rest.

Next, I moved on to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Picture Puzzles {Volume 2} where I had to look for differences between two similar pictures. I did the first puzzle which was marked “easy”. I liked that it had check boxes on the side of the page so I could mark the differences as I found them. I still pulled out my pen and circled the errors I found on one of the pictures. Some of the differences were easy to spot but a couple of them had me stumped. I eventually found the differences but it wasn’t as easy as I had originally thought it was going to be.

The last book I opened up was the Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles {Volume 2} book. As soon as I read the first puzzle my head hurt but I really liked that it had a little spreadsheet at the bottom of the page so that I could keep track of everything. I waited until I had some quiet time and then pulled it out and set to work on solving the puzzle. I found myself taking longer to solve the puzzle than the time the book suggested it would take but once I figured it out I was proud of myself and wanted to try another one.

Though the Sudoku puzzles are still my favorite I really enjoyed doing the logic puzzles as well. I think these books would be great on a road trip. Want to win a set of books for yourself? You can!
