Puzzling Over the Answers---Play Along

We just finished our third puzzle completed during this time of 'social distancing/stay at home order.' While working on it I puzzled over the answers to each 'book.' Below are my answers.

  1. A Clockwork Orange was intense, but I did finish it. However, there are so many others that I haven't even started that I feel I "should." We just tried to order a Liberty puzzle and they aren't taking orders while they try to fill all the ones they already have. I guess everyone is thinking the same thing.

    1. I should send you some of my puzzles. I have too many.

  2. I would have to think long and hard before answering. I always have more than one that would fit. Which to choose? :)

  3. Fun! And i like these picks. I have fond memories of Charlotte's Web from my childhood, and I still need to read Hitchhiker's Guide one of these days.

  4. I love this! I made my own as quickly as I could, trying not to overthink my answers. I will always remember reading Charlotte's Web in fifth grade, for about the twentieth time, and crying when Charlotte died for the first time. I was so confused--why was this having a different effect? I wonder now if I'd hit some developmental milestone around empathy.

  5. Sorry, just trying to see if your site is eating my comments.

  6. Thanks for starting this meme. I think I shall try it this week.

  7. Doing puzzles, especially book puzzles, sounds like a good activity right now.
