The Great Book of Mind Teasers & Mind Puzzlers by George J. Summers.

I'm pretty sure that I can...it has an ISBN, isn't a magazine, has no advertising and the original cost was comparable to a MMPB. None of the puzzles/brain teasers have been filled in.

I seem to remember a debate over puzzle books some time ago and wanted to ask here before I posted it.

Activity books and puzzle books would count as workbooks and the special rules governing the swapping of workbooks (the same as the rules for textbooks) would come into play, as described in the Help doc "Book Condition Criteria for Swappability at PBS" in the HelP Center.

We hope this information is helpful. Have a great day!

The PaperBackSwap Team


Section from the Help Center

Exception: if it is a textbook or workbook, these are expected to have highlighting/underlining/writing

  • if you post a textbook/workbook, the condition must be described to the requestor in a Personal Message
  • AND the described condition MUST BE AGREED TO in a reply PM before the book is sent

Christy is right.  If you want a more complete answer look on page two of this thread for what the team had to say about puzzle books.

Can you post word seach, puzzle, crossword books, sticker, etc.?

Wow, I somehow missed the most recent topic on this.  I was actually referring to a much older topic that I sort of remember reading here.

Thank you for answering so quickly!
