We're going to nerd it up at The Junk Pyramid today.
I almost wanted to do this in secret, but I figured I've already exposed enough of myself to y'all, so a little more doesn't matter.
I'm a complete word puzzle nerd. I'm the person who buys those "Variety Puzzles: Jumbo Issue" that normal people walk by in the grocery store. I'm the one who ordered a set of 40 of those books a couple years ago for a cheap price. I'm the one who is steadily working her way through these books. I'm the one (hiding head in embarrassment) who attaches the book to a clipboard for easier puzzling.
I'm the one who has a puzzle clipboard on two different floors of my house.
I am also the one who has a bad habit of skipping puzzles I don't like or can't finish, but swear to myself that I'll come back and finish the book later. I'm a bit of a completest. I hate to leave things halfway done.
But I also hate to go back through partially used books (books that only have the lame and really hard puzzles left) when there are so many fresh, unblemished books waiting in my basement.
(Look. I warned you that I was going to nerd it up, didn't I?)
So I finally took it upon myself to recycle all those books that I didn't want to finish, but couldn't throw away:
