Pencil or Ink? LAZY Sunday Crossword Puzzles

Lazy Sunday NY Times

Ahhh Sundays and the New York Times Crossword Puzzle. I have always envied those of you who can finish one of these (Catrine can!) and have mastered the special language of crossword puzzles. I got this book of puzzles for the shop, Lazy Sunday Crosswords- 200 puzzles for the Perfect Weekend, specifically for these kind of weekends- and I brought one with me this weekend for my man Flip, whose birthday was yesterday (Born on the 4th of July!). Jess and I were chatting the other day at the shop about Will Shortz, the NY Times Crossword puzzle editor since 1993, and she told me that he went to Indiana University (her alma mater) and created his own major, Enigmatology, which is the study of puzzles. We have sold a ton of Will Shortz’ products at the shop, from this boook above- to How to Conquer the New York Times Crossword Puzzle (have this one in stock now too!) as well as his NPR puzzle decks. These books make great traveling companions as well as house party presents that will challenge and sharpen your mind. $11.95.
