This has been a good month for puzzles!
First up a 4-D puzzle of San Francisco.
First a map of San Francisco in the late 1800s
Then a foam layer of current day. Then a set of buildings.
Place the buildings in chronological order and you have your fourth D!

During the wet weather we have had some rainbows.

Ivory Vikings: The mystery of the most famous chessmen in the world and the woman who made them. Fantastic history book, just as the sub-title says. I learned a lot about Iceland, which is handy since that is our next big trip!

Lauren Ipsum, A Story About Computer Science and Other Improbable Things: A fun intro to a few computer-y science-y ideas. Appropriate for middle school age kids.
My Christmas cactus bloomed at the right time this year-and so many blooms!!

We Need New Names: A coming of age story of a young girl who starts off in Zimbabwe but comes to America. No real plot, just the thoughts and feelings. Love the descriptive writing-words boil, houses glare-brings everything to life.
A fun puzzle of New York sky scrapers-the cat loves puzzles...well sleeping on the finished product and trying to eat the pieces anyway!
House in the country panorama puzzle.

Claire of the Sea Light: I stumbled on this one in my e-books at the library and it was just delightful. The intertwined lives of people in a small town in Haiti.

Trading for a Living: This is aimed at day traders, which I am not, but I got some good insights anyway.
Parade of Cows, with mini-cows. This one was fast and fun.
Gorgeous art puzzle. The borders made a good start, but then we hit the wall with the ladies-colors are similar and the style is watercolor, making it hard to figure it out. It came together eventually with much trial and error.
Waldo visits a vampire party.
I hate your puzzle obsession-here, let me help.
Next month fewer puzzles, more books :)
