Jumbo Print Easy Crosswords #2 by Matt Gaffney This is a 288 page crossword puzzle book with large print. Each grid and each set of clues take up an entire page (giving each puzzle two pages) so the whole book is easy on the eyes. This is especially helpful for reading those pesky little numbers in the boxes. The puzzles are 11 X 13 squares, slightly smaller than the standard daily-size 15 X 15 square puzzles, and most have only two theme entries. The answers have their own section in the back of the book. This book of crossword puzzles is a great way to keep minds exercised in the depth of winter when sometimes it is hard to get outside to keep the body exercised!
