Don't forget the BAFAB contest that starts tomorrow! ---BAFAB's FIRST ANNIVERSARY CONTEST: Over at Buy a Friend a Book they're throwing a week-long puzzle contest. The three winners will walk away with more than $500 worth of literary stuff between them--stacks of books and memberships in LibraryThing and even a text editor. The contest runs from July 1st to July 7th, and it's going to be hosted at BAFAB and co-hosted at six other literary sites across the web.

Go to Grumpy Old Bookman for the first puzzle July 1st - CANADA DAY!

Love the picture, Susan!
How are you getting on with that crossword? I am finding that lacking knowledge of US "personalities" and of Debra's academic specialism is somewhat hampering!

I just love some of those clues! I think Debra must have invested in pulp and paper recently - I printed the puzzle and clues out - FOUR sheets! I'll have to Google some of the answers though; my education's not up to it.

I'm really enjoying the puzzle, Debra - you constructed it yourself I take it?

I think I've got it done...just a little unsure on 6-down and 16-across. I loved 25-across and 37-down! You're going to have to start constructing puzzles for the NYTimes, Debra!

My 16-across is correct - I just figured out what Debra meant! Another great clue!

One disadvantate of using an RSS reader is that you can miss comments. Just saw all this. Though, Maxine, if you're reading this: I did just start using co.comments the other day, and it's working for me. Not perfectly. My browser doesn't allow me to view the comments on the co.comments page. But at least it alerts me to new discussions. I don't know if it works everywhere. I assume it wouldn't work with this popup Blogger comment, but I'll check. Oh, duh. It'll work on the permalink page. Good.
