Puzzle Me This!

Maybe you remember my post of my “Bizzare Bookshop” puzzle earlier? Here’s a picture of it; it is now hanging on my bedroom wall.

This bookstore really is bizarre, lots of weird things lying on the shelves, and all the titles are puns on classic stories!

I also had two more puzzles to complete. I love puzzles almost as much as I love books, so to be able to do puzzles of books is a-m-a-z-i-n-g for me! Ravensburger makes the best puzzles, ever. And believe you me, I have done my fair share of puzzles.

The next one is finished, and hanging on my bedroom wall. This one is “World of Words”. This took less than a week.

The one in progress is “Sanctuary of Knowledge”, which is taking me already two weeks….I did this one last year and one of my girls took it and put it in their room. Fair enough. I have just really been struggling to sit down and work on this: holidays, back to work, MBA classes started……

And the toughest, but my favorite Ravensburger puzzle? “The Last Supper”. A very close friend of mine from church bought this for me and my girls. 3000 pieces. Took us all 6 weeks to complete it but it has been hanging on my kitchen wall for over two years and I love looking at this. Every. Single. Day.

What do you think? Are you a puzzle solver?

My Favorite thing To Do Besides Reading?

Puzzles. I love puzzles, so do my girls; it’s a great opportunity for us to talk as well 🙂 What’s even better? Puzzles of books and libraries! Yep, there is such a thing!

I completed a 1000 piece one last year, framed it, and before I could hang it on my wall one of my girls had already swiped it and put it in their room!

So I bought that same puzzle, again. As well as another one that seems to be a matching set. Also a 500 piece one called “Bizarre Bookstore”, and it really is.

These puzzles are made by Ravensburger, and they are the best puzzles I have ever seen (and I have finished a lot of puzzles). The pieces are heavy, fit together good, and don’t fall apart.

Do you love puzzles, or hate them? I always hear people respond in one extreme or the other.
