New York Times crossword puzzle books

(1/1)

Thomps2525:
Oh boy! On May 16, 2017, St. Martin's Griffin will publish seven volumes of New York Times crossword puzzles. Each volume contains puzzles from a particular day of the week. It's good that the books are spiral-bound so the pages will lie flat -- but each book includes only 50 puzzles. Why not a hundred? Anyway, I suggest getting all seven volumes from a local bookstore. These stores need our support. But if you absolutely have to get the books from Amazon, here is the link to volume one -- or would it be considered volume two? When exactly does the "puzzle week" begin?

Not trying to be snotty here, but should note that the ones I'm aware of would never carry anything like this.  Ever.  Unless you count "Pennypress" or "Dell" as "anything like this", of course.

Anyhow, thanks for the heads-up (and thankfully they're not novel-bound).

Edit: and a question.  How does this set differ from the set released in February I see on Amazon?  I suppose these are actual quarterly releases?  And how does one tell the difference between one and the other?

ahimsa:
For those who want to support an independent bookstore while shopping online one option is Powell's Books:
