Lazy Summer Reads Book Hop: Enter to Win Brain-Teasing Puzzle Books! (GIVEAWAY)


Welcome to the Lazy Summer Reads Book Hop hosted by eReading on the Cheap and Midwestern Moms. If you love books, you’ve come to the right place because every giveaway in the hop features books or book-related items.

For my giveaway, I’m featuring three brain-challenging books from Alpha Books! These books are perfect for long plane or car trips, a lazy day on the beach, or a rainy day inside. One lucky winner will receive the following three books:

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Picture Puzzles, Volume 2


This is my boys’ favorite book. They love to spot the differences between these pairs of colorful pictures. Each puzzle is labeled Easy, Medium, Difficult or Advanced and tells the number of differences between the two pictures. And, yes, the answers are in the back if you get stumped! This book really helps train the eyes to notice details.

Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Volume 2


This book features 200 brand-new grid-based logic puzzles. Solving logic puzzles is a great way to help kids from middle school through college keep their math skills fresh over the summer. Make copies and challenge your friends to see who can solve the puzzle first! If you enjoy a real brain workout, this book is for you!

Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku


I think I’m probably the only person in the world who hasn’t done a Sudoku puzzle before getting this book. They’re immensely popular and addictive! This book features 400 new Sudoku puzzles that are categorized as Easy, Medium, Hard, and Fiendish. As a beginner, I’m still working on the Easy puzzles, but if you’re a Sudoku expert, you’ll definitely want to challenge your skills with the Hard or even Fiendish puzzles! This book guarantees many hours of summer entertainment.

This blog hop runs from June 1-8 at 11:59 PM EST. Open to U.S. residents only. When you’re done entering through the Rafflecopter form below, be sure to check out all of the other participating blogs in the Linky at the bottom of this post.
