  • I AM CURRENTLY READING AND EXCELLENTLY WRITTEN BOOK BY A HIGHLY VISIBLE AMERICAN AT THIS TIME. HIS USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE HAS CHALLENGED ME TO PROBE MY MIND IN RESEARCHING THEIR MEANING AND RETAINING THEM.

  • A word search, word find, word seek, word sleuth or mystery word puzzle is a generic word game that consists of seemingly random letters arranged in a grid, that usually has a rectangular shape. The object of the game is to find and mark all of the words hidden in the grid. The words may have been placed horizontally, vertically or diagonally. They may have been written backwards or not. Often a list of the hidden words is provided, but more challenging puzzles may let the player figure them out. Many word search puzzles have a theme to which all the hidden words are related.

    Word searches are commonly found in daily newspapers and puzzle books.
