White Mountain Vintage Book Cover Collage Jigsaw Puzzle

Do you like working jigsaw puzzles?  It’s one of our favorite pastimes during winter months when we’re stuck inside on cold days. 

Since we are a community of bookworms, I want to share with you my very favorite puzzle of all-time.  It is a perfect gift for the book lover on your list, or you might want to snag one for yourself.  I received mine a couple Christmases ago.

The puzzle includes vintage book covers of bestselling novels.  As the pieces satisfyingly snap into place making the picture come alive, I can’t decide which one I want to read next when I’m done.  Should I start with A Tale of Two Cities or The Time Machine?  It’s so hard to choose!

Not all puzzles are created equally.  Sometimes the print quality is poor, or the pieces are flimsy and tear.  White Mountain puzzles always deliver high quality designs and thick pieces so you can rework the same puzzle over and over without damaging it.

Some people find a 1,000 piece puzzle daunting.  It is quite large!  The finished size is 24 x 30 inches.  For us, it means putting an extra leaf in our dining room table so all the pieces aren’t falling onto the floor!  If you don’t have help working it, a smaller version is available.  The 300 piece option might be more manageable.  Its final dimensions are only 18 x 24 inches, and it includes many of the same vintage covers.  We also love this puzzle is made in the USA.

Benefits of Working Jigsaw Puzzles

Psychiatrists say puzzles help our brains by improving memory, honing problem solving skills, developing visual-spatial reasoning, lowering stress, and bolstering our mood, but for those of us who love puzzles (especially when they feature our favorite books), we do them because they are old-fashioned fun!

It is inexplicably gratifying when you find pieces that fit.  Sometimes our family has a competition to see which one of us can find a particular piece first.  If we get stuck and cease making progress, we find it beneficial to walk away and do something else before coming back for another round.  Sustained focus without a break can work against you.  Fresh eyes make a big difference. Other times, my only real contribution is flipping over the pieces to get started!  

Puzzles bring our family together, and they can do the same for yours.  I would rather see my family gathered around the table talking, laughing, and collaborating than parked in front of a screen or device.  Wouldn’t you?

The White Mountain Vintage Book Cover Collage Jigsaw puzzle might even spark an interest in your kids or grand kids to read one of the classics depicted in the artwork—the perfect opportunity for you to introduce them to one of your “old friends.”

'Tis the Season for a Christmas Book Giveaway: Two Copies of "The Christmas Town" by Donna VanLiere

  The Christmas Town Became a Hallmark Movie Fans of Candace Cameron Bure will remember her portrayal of Lauren Gabriel in Hallmark's 2019 movie,  Christmas Town , which is based on this book by Donna VanLiere.  However, the Hallmark version has almost nothing in common with the novel.  The book and the movie share only three things:  character names, setting, and the fact Lauren was once a foster child.     Since the storylines veer in different directions, the book will take you on a far deeper and better journey.   Lauren is a 21-year-old cashier who grew up in foster homes, always hoping the relationship with her drug addict mother might one day be restored.  She longs for family.  One day, she witnesses a car accident that thrusts her into the small town of Grandon.  She loves the town and all the people in it and finds the faith, hope, love, and family her heart has always longed for. The Christmas Town is a very uplifting story brimming with faith, generosity, servanthood,

Review: "The Book of Signs" by Dr. David Jeremiah

Is the End of the World Near?  When you watch the news and read the headlines, it seems our world is hurtling towards disaster.  Christ followers are taught to be ready for His Second Coming, although no one knows the day or the hour He will return. The Bible is filled with prophetic passages to give us clues about what to expect in the end times leading up to the apocalypse; however, unless you're a Biblical scholar, many of these scriptures may seem cryptic.   In The Book of Signs , Dr. David Jeremiah shares deep insight into complicated Biblical prophecy to make it digestable and easy to understand.  Your eyes will be opened, and the meaning behind familiar scriptures will be revealed  like never before.   How The Book of Signs is Structured The Book of Signs is a comprehensive manual that breaks down end time prophecies into manageable chunks over the course of 31 chapters: PART 1:  International Signs Chapter 1:  Israel Chapter 2:  Europe Chapter 3:  Russia Chapter 4:  Babylo

Don't Let Your Kids Read Harry Potter

Have your kids been imploring you for permission to read the Harry Potter series?  It seems like everyone is hooked on these books, making your kids feel awkwardly quarantined from their peers over the divide on principles.  After all, Scholastic book orders provided by the indoctrination centers of public schools are brimming with Harry Potter selections, serving up an alarming dose of witchcraft for the youngest readers to the oldest.  Isn't everything sanctioned by the schools supposed to be in your child's best interests?  Hardly.  Not only is the book addiction rampant, but the frenzy is intensified by movies, museum exhibits, and video games.  A full line of merchandise supports the franchise, offering consumers Harry Potter board games, magic wands, apparel, cups, calendars, umbrellas, necklaces, and other fan fare products.  If Harry Potter is so evil and insidious, surely the bandwagon would be fairly empty, right?  We find the answer in I Corinthians 2:14,
