Overview

The response to our Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Puzzle Book #1 was so overwhelming it demanded an encore performance. So we sent our premiere puzzlemaker Stephanie Spadaccini and her team of top puzzle constructors back to the Bathroom Reader archives to seek out more tantalizing trivia to craft into more popular puzzles for aficionados everywhere. As Hollywood knows, sequels are challenging, but we have managed a second act that is, if anything, even better than our first. Here again are the most popular types of puzzles—word searches, crosswords, criss-crosses, anagrams, cryptograms, double-crostics, and brain-teasers—along with cryptolists, trivia quizzes, palindromes, and more. Every puzzle is ranked according to degree of difficulty and every one is fun.
People have always enjoyed solving puzzles and the number of puzzlers is growing by leaps and bounds. So sharpen your pencil and settle in for a satisfying session of mental aerobics.

Accually, this was a gift to my mother who is an avid puzzle fan. She enjoyed all the books my family had given her (which were purchased at Barnes and Noble). I didn't get to ask about this one in particular yet; but if she didn't like it, she would have said so.

I have purchased the Uncle John's Bathroom series several times for my husband and he seems to enjoy them.

My family and I were going to travel by van to New Jersey to visit family. I wanted a puzzle book to switch up with reading during the long trip. I looked at crossword, find-a-word and several other books and couldn't settle on just one genre. When I found this book, although not fond of the name of the book, I was thrilled to death! There were puzzles for everyone and we were even able to do a couple with the whole group! Can't wait to do another one - I'm not going to wait for the next road trip either!

When you are on the throne, you need some wisdom to fall back on, comes specially equipped with a built in jester. I'm sold on the entire series.

I think the book is fabulous -- but then, I edited it. And my name is spelled SPADACCINI -- not SPADACEINI. Glad to see it's available! Thanks, Stephanie Spadaccini
