    Great Crossword Books

    This set of spiral bound Simon and Schuster crosswords edited by John Samson is just the right balance of challenging and solvable. Also, the small spiral binding makes the mechanics of holding the book open soooo much easier than traditional bindings. I wish that B&N would carry more of the whole series...I think I've gone thru all the ones they've had in-store over the last few years.
