    Great for a Newbie or Returning X-Wordie

    Having been away from crossword puzzles for quite a few years, I was a little wary of returning to what was once a favorite pasttime. As I surveyed the rows of puzzle books, my eyes fell on this one. I knew The New York Times Crossword Puzzle (from never being able to complete one) and I was a fan of Will Shortz on NPR so I decided I would start with this one. In it I learned that he is really is The NYT Crossword Editor and the puzzles, while considered "easy," are nevertheless challenging. I had to relearn the rythym and rhyme of the crossword, but it was worth it to find myself picking up speed and agility going from puzzle to puzzle. Again, I would definitely recommend this book for anyone new to crossword puzzles or returning after an absence of any length.

    NY Times Easy Crossword Puzzles

    I love doing the Monday, Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday NY Times puzzles. After that I am pretty much drowning. I don't want them too easy but don't want to be so challenged it's not enjoyable. These puzzles hit the mark right on.
