Enter to #win New York Times 'Tis the Season for Crosswords

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


St. Martin's Press has released the
"New York Times, 'Tis the Season Crosswords' book,
just in time for holiday gift shopping!

When I was a kid, crosswords were my thing. I remember spending hours upon hours just before the holiday season, meticulously putting together crossword puzzles for everyone in my family. That was my gift to them, and it's something I did for many years in a row. Luckily, my family loved (or pretended to love) my hard work, crooked (and uphill) boxes and all. :)

As I got older, I lost the desire to create puzzles,but I never lost my love for doing them.


Just in time for the holiday season, St. Martin's Press has published The New York Times, 'Tis the Season - Crosswords. This is no ordinary crossword puzzle book. The beautiful holiday-themed cover lets you know right away that it is special. And that shiny gold? Yep, I love it!

This is truly a book worth keeping, or giving!


The sturdy wirebound spine ensures your puzzles stay intact and they give you easy page flipping access too.


If you're stumped on any one answer, there is an answer key in the back of the book. There is also a difficulty key to let you know how hard a puzzle is, before you plunge right in. Snowflakes are used as the keys (which I think is oh so cute!).

I think this book would be a great gift for co-workers, teachers, and/or anyone who loves a good crossword puzzle (just an FYI, there is also a 'Tis the Season for Soduku' book). I'd love to keep mine, but it's so pretty, I think I'm going to have to gift it. We'll see... I'm still deciding. ;)

Someone else is going to get to face the same dilemma (hey, that's the kind of dilemma I like) because one lucky winner is going to get one to call their own.. You can learn more by visiting the St. Martin's Press website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

US & Canada only.
