Brain Teasing Puzzle Books {Giveaway - Ends (CLOSED)5/7}

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner listed below!

One of the best ways to keep your mind young is to challenge it and try new things. One of my favorite ways is through puzzles. Sudoku, crossword, word search, whatever you can find to challenge yourself. Each puzzle is different, therefore, a challenge to your brain as you are trying to figure it out.

The product: I received a copy of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Picture Puzzles, Volume 2, Puzzle Baron's Sudoku and Puzzle Baron's Logic Puzzles, Volume 2. Especially since I enjoy puzzles, these books were tons of puzzling fun. These books are each full of their own fun puzzles to solve.

About the Author
Stephen P. Ryder is the founder and editor of the Puzzle Baron network of websites ( These sites focus primarily on textual games and puzzles, including acrostics, cryptograms, logic puzzles, drop quotes, sudoku, patchwords and many more. The Puzzle Baron network has upward of a half a million unique visitors each month, along with an extremely dedicated user-base of more than 50,000 registered players who compete against each other for record scores and times.

The Puzzle Baron site launched in mid-2008, and though a relatively new site, it is consistently ranked #2 in Google and Bing for anyone searching for the terms "Logic Puzzles" or "Logic Puzzle". The site was featured in PC World (April 12, 2009) as a recommended site for logic puzzles, and currently has more than 10,000 registered members. It offers the largest library of grid-based logic puzzles available anywhere online—currently just over 5,000—and it has a statistical solving history on every one of the puzzles from the database of just under a million puzzles solved since inception. 

What I thought: I did really enjoy these puzzle books. I have completed more than half of the Puzzle Baron's Sudoku book in the month I've had it. I love Sudoku puzzles most. There are several different levels of puzzles, so even if your a new puzzler you can work your way up to the challenging ones.

My son was excited when he saw The Complete Idiot's Guide to Picture Puzzles, Volume 2. He wanted to do the puzzles. He loves picture puzzles, so this was perfect for him. This book is great for young kids to adults. It's challenging enough for adults, but kids will still have fun looking for the difference like Zachariah did.

I think these books are great for any puzzle lovers. They would make a great Mother's Day or Father's Day gift for the parent who like puzzles.
