Swagbucks Book Club – “XEBFALYRX AMMR YOLA”

Posted by on Fri, April 12th, 2013 at 10:00 am

Welcome to the Swagbucks Book Club.

If you are looking for information about the new ability to share Swag Codes you want the blog post underneath this one. :) Check it out and then come back here because the Book Club knows how to have fun, too.  In fact, last week’s discussion reminded me of just how smart and culturally rich our members are.  Thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts, I hope you picked up at least one suggestion that was new to you.

Today’s discussion might be stretching the definition of “book” a bit but I thought we deserved a little fun this week.  Back when I was just a wee Swaggernaut of about 12 years old my mom would buy me what we called “puzzle books” to pass the time when I taking a sick day from school.  ”Puzzle Books” were magazines and collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, cryptograms, word finds, etc.  You can find them on any newsstand; Dell or PennyPress are the most popular brands.  I could spend hours pouring through those puzzles and still find myself picking them up at the airport before a long flight.

What I want to know is do you enjoy these types of puzzles?  Which are your favorite?  Are these puzzles something you do regularly or at certain times?  Do you prefer printed versions or online (and if so, share links to your favorite sites).   Please feel free to add any additional thoughts in the comment section.  I’ll choose 3 contributors on Monday and hook them up with 25 Swag Bucks each! (by the way, did you decipher the cryptogram in the title?)

Don’t forget that we will be discussion this month’s reading selection - The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – on Friday April 26th.

As an extra bonus, here is a word find based on Of Mice and Men.  Enjoy!
