As some of you may know, crosswords are not my forte, but have always wanted to start solving them without having to look up any hints or answers. Well, a few weeks ago I picked up a copy of Dell's Puzzle Lovers Easy Crosswords and have really enjoyed the puzzles in this magazine. I've only solved a few puzzles in the book, but have been able to solve them, correctly I might add smile , without having to get any hints. I've finally found a title that seems to suit my skill level! For anyone that may be shying away from crosswords because they seem too hard, this title may be a great start for you!

If you subscribe to a newspaper, its a great source of an easy daily puzzle that should help you up your game. If not, the USA today daily crossword is free online or in the app. I also like to solve the Thomas Joseph crossword, which is available through the crossword paid app. All fun. Best way to get better at crosswords is to solve more of them.

I've clipped a few crosswords out of our daily paper, and have come close to solving one a couple of times, but always get stuck at some point. That's why I was so happy to find Dell's title. It's at just the right level to make crosswords fun for me. smile Like you said, the more I do the better I'll get at them, hopefully. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to look at a cryptic crossword LOL!!

I've noticed that both Dell and Penny Press seem to have tilted a significant portion of their crossword line-up in favor of easier crosswords. At Wal-Mart, for instance, I always find their value series, and one of the entries is an Easy Crosswords title.


I've been easing my way back into crosswords this year (primarily with the New York Times crossword app, but also PuzzleNation's crossword app too, which I highly recommend as it features Penny Press and Dell crosswords) and the easy crosswords have helped me get back into the rhythm of it.

For a crossword solver like myself, the easy level books sometimes are enough to provide the relaxation that is needed after a long day.

I think a really bad translation program was involved, or else a "manual" attempt to translate with no knowledge of English, using a dictionary or thesaurus. Oddly, the result is mostly grammatical. It just has wrong words replacing the right ones.

That's pretty much what I thought, too. Tempo for time, dearth for want, deed for thing, edge for limit----wrong synonyms chosen.
