    Bad as an ebook!

    Most of the puzzels you can't see. The word search, crossword and soduku you can see but not interact with, so you have to remember it or write it out. Don't waste your pennies.

    Disappointed

    Bought book so I could work puzzles on my Nook. Very disappointed that in order to do word puzzles you have to do on separate paper. Can't do word search at all, as it's not interactive. Disclaimer should say only buy if you need the instructions and info, not if you want to actually do the puzzles in the book.
