    Food for the Mind

    I am a senior citizen, and proud of it! One of the things that I became interested in, besides reading, that is, was ways to keep my mind sharp as I got older. And crosswords was a natural road to travel.As an aside, I have also added Sudoku; which is another great pasttime of mine.

    I have to be honest and tell you that I was a bit dissapointed in the quality of this particular crossword book. It was almost too easy. I have always been an advocate for AARP, and I was greatly pleased to see them representing a crossword book. But, I think they sugar-coated the difficulty of the puzzles.

    Please bear in mind, I am an avid puzzler, and this was just too easy for me. Others, getting started on tweaking the gray cells will find this series a perfect match for them.

    Great For Our Mind

    Very good for keeping us sharp as the book says. Wish they had more for me to purchase. You do not have to have a Crossword Dictionary but I like having one for the few I cannot figure out and when I try harder Crosswords it does come in very handy. Worth buying and increasing the memory.
