Review: The Word SnoopUser Review - Goodreads
Such a fun, interractive, and informative book about the history of words and word games. Each chapter had a puzzle to solve relating to the section (like an anagram). The writing was aimed for kids, but I found it enjoyable and learned some new things myself. Great read. Read full review
