Readers Paradise — 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

White Mountain Puzzles has this excellent 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle — Readers Paradise for you and your family to enjoy.

During all times of the year is the right time to set out a jigsaw puzzle for the whole family to enjoy.

White Mountain Puzzles features oversized 100% recycled blue chipboard pieces. The pieces are large and thick which makes them easy to pick up. This 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle measures 24″ x 30″ when completed.

I was drawn to Readers Paradise because I loved the detail and could spend hours exploring such a unique shop. It would be the type of place I would feel comfortable finding a cozy spot to read. 

This is a definite “must have” for the book lovers in your family.

Yet there are a few issues . . . the image is not entirely in focus, some pieces have been bent and some have experienced missing pieces. Some have had issues with the interlocking pieces fitting too snugly together.

I suppose it is all a matter of personal preference . . . but since this is the inside of a bookstore, one would expect the shelves and the books to be clear and crisp . . . Compared with other White Mountain puzzles, this one doesn’t seem to have the quality one would expect.

So, be sure to read the reviews and decide for yourself whether Readers Paradise is the right jigsaw puzzle for you.

Wonderful Rainy Weather

I love the rain, but not the flooding.

Too much of a good thing can somethings lead to trouble.

I’ve been thinking about digging into some jigsaw puzzles. They are a wonderful rainy day activity.

It Smells Like Rain

This pre-fall overcast day is quite welcome with the smell of rain in the air.

The forecast is 50% chance of rain . . . and the temperature was at 78° F. It may get a bit warmer . . . and maybe not.fallwallpaper3

The pre-fall weather and the early fall weather has been a bit stubborn for several years. I always have hope that fall will come and stay. I do seem to be surprised . . . but there is nothing we can do about the weather except enjoy it.

It’s always good to get out and enjoy the morning. Everything is relatively quiet in my neighborhood. At one time I thought it a bit eerie . . . like a sci fi movie — remember the pod people? I wondered if pods were behind the closed gates and garage doors . . .

Yes, I have an overactive imagination at times.

It does seem like the perfect day to dig out a jigsaw puzzle. Since my brother moved to Alaska, I’ve been thinking of nature and the wildlife he sees. This 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle by SunsOut is a beautiful Forest Collage you and your family may enjoy putting together.

The artist, Jim Hansel is a premier wildlife, nature and landscape artist.

The completed dimensions of this 1000 piece masterpiece is 20 inches by 27 inches.

This seems like a sensible way of kicking off the pre-fall season.

This jigsaw puzzle is challenging enough for adults and not too discouraging for children. I think it’s a great family project.

All Hollows Eve Jigsaw Puzzle — Product Review


Many jigsaw puzzle artists capture the absolute essence of All Hollow’s Eve. I especially like all the activity that’s taking place on this evening we know so well and can imagine how it once was in that particular town. It gives a feeling of nostalgia. This is an excellent puzzle the whole family will enjoy putting together. It won’t take too long with only 500 pieces. I know its early in the season, but with the thunder shower we were experiencing, this puzzle seemed appropriate to put together. It was a nice way to spend the evening.
