Picture Puzzles

With my vision and concentration problems because of my migraines, my reading has been hard enough to keep up with. Puzzles have definitely been out. I've never been great at crosswords to start with, but I liked to do word searches once in a while. I tried to do Sudoku a couple times, but it's too much like math (one of my least favorite subjects.

Then I found these Life: The Original Picture Puzzle books at the bookstore. They are "spot the differences" type of pictures, and I can actually do them, even with moderate migraine pain. The pictures are super cute, too.

Book Description from Amazon

"The most popular feature in Life magazine every week perhaps the most popular weekly page in any American publicationis the Picture Puzzle. This game has become a must-have activity in a great majority of the 13 million households Life reaches every Friday. Hundreds of Life's readers have demanded "We want a Picture Puzzle book!" And here, in a special 192-page collection, that demand is met. There are variations on themes and variations on the game itself, as scores of color and vintage black-and-white photographsmany from the famous Time-Life Picture Archivesare twisted, doctored, and otherwise toyed with, all in the name of fun and entertainment. For the first time, the Picture Puzzle is offered in three different degrees of difficulty. Like the Ultimate Crossword book before it, this book will fly off the shelvesnot just in bookstores, but in airports and supermarkets. From the first issue of the new Life magazine, Picture Puzzle has been a hit, and the same will be true of Life's Picture Puzzlefrom the moment the first copy hits the shelf. "

that looks like a great book! i noticed that the product reviews said that the pictures are G-rated, too, so you could share with kids (if you had any).

I've also had my share of concentration problems with my headaches, so I've been doing more crossword puzzles lately... I actually started Paula Kamen's "All In My Head" a week or two ago, and I'm taking it a chapter or two at a time.

So great to find a fellow sufferer, though it would be better if it was something else we had in common ;)
