Sit & Solve Cryptogramsby Leslie Billig
Simple substitutions--that's all you have to do to come up with a solution! Just figure out which letter stands for another and you'll be able to read fantastic quotations from famous people. Don't worry, you'll get hints on how to begin and narrow down the choices. Remember that a one-letter word is always A or I, and that in a two-letter word, one must be a vowel. Apostrophes can also eliminate lots of possibilities. Some words--like AND--occur over and over, so look out for them. Keep an eye out for -ed, -ing, and -tion endings, too. In every cryptogram the code is consistent, but it does change from puzzle to puzzle. So, now you know how to go.give this a shot!
