18 Great Bookish Puzzles

If you live in a place where it gets cold, chances are that you’re currently experiencing the point in time when you’re Very Over the cold. One way to stave off the winter blues and get your mind active is to read, of course. But sometimes, you need a break from a book or you want to move your mind in a bit of a different way.

Enter puzzles.

I know I’m not alone in having fond memories of putting together a good jigsaw or two. There are people in my family who are puzzle fanatics, at times driving multiple hours a day, each way, to visit warehouses or thrift stores to score a good deal on one. It’s a nice way to exercise your brain a bit differently and occupy time in a way that’s wildly satisfying (or satisfyingly frustrating).

Here’s a round-up of some rad bookish puzzles for your nerdy enjoyment.
