Bestsellers – Re-marks – 1000 pieces
This fantastic collage image was so entertaining to me that I did something I haven’t done (alone) in years – I completed this puzzle in less than one day. It was already sorted, but I started with the edge in the morning and it was finished before 9 pm. It was easy to pick out pieces for each book and I was fully engaged in each little section.
The fit was a bit loose, but otherwise the quality was pretty good. I know going in that Re-marks puzzles aren’t premium quality, but their catalog of images is just too fun for me to pass up. In general though, they have good quality puzzles and I never hesitate to buy one of them.
I wanted to show the books closer up, so I’ve taken pics of each third of the puzzle. Please excuse the glare at the top, I didn’t have the angle just right.
This section has my favorite book of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird. And a confession that I haven’t read many of these books at all. In this first section only four of these books have been cracked open by me; what an ignorant philistine I am!
Three is the number of books read by me in this section. Yikes. But in all fairness, if they don’t interest me or the subject matter is too heavy and deep it is like slogging through mud for me to read them. I don’t do things because others do; I follow my own weird, winding, strange little path. I don’t read books because “people” think they’re important; I read books purely for education and/or entertainment. No excuses or explanations required.
I’ve only read two books in this section! And yes, one of them was Twilight. 🦇 In my defense, I was wanting to understand why my teenaged (at the time) daughter was so enthralled by this series, and so I read it. Then I needed to find out what happened so I kept on going. I won’t say they’re a guilty pleasure because I don’t believe you should feel guilty about things that make you happy (unless it hurts others), but I do enjoy that series now and again. It’s nice to zone out once in a while and read a sappy young adult love story.
The other book in this section that I’ve read was Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. VERY different in every way from Twilight. Very very different.
I love these panoramic collage puzzles from Re-marks, no matter what the subject of the collage is. I’ve got another one waiting in the wings – Broadway Musicals. I wonder if I’ll like it…..
OF COURSE I WILL! 😎
