    Great, Want More of the Same

    I have purchased this book twice, completing the first one awhile ago. I would like a new edition of large print Cryptograms. I am working on this one happily.

    Help someone with vision problems!

    I made a gift of this book to my mother, who is in a nursing home. She used to enjoy the daily cryptograms in the newspaper, but now she doesn't get the paper any more. I think she enjoyed it all the more since there were lots of puzzles in the book and she could do them as she wishes.
