Brain Teaser – Wordfinder

wordfinder_iconIt’s been a while since the last brainteaser (not actually sure anyone looks at them, but what the heck), so I figured I’d add another. Remember those word finder blocks of letters you used to do as a kid? Here is a 20×20 square for you to try and rather than copying an existing one, I decided to create it instead. Turns out that’s more fun than I remember actually completing one.

Hints:

  • Every letter is used at least once in a word or phrase (e.g. book title).
  • At least 60 words are related to writing, authors, books and book characters.
  • There are over 100 words hidden in the square.
  • British/UK English (sorry Yanks)
  • Words are Up, Down, Diagonal, Backwards and some even Turn a Corner.
  • All words/phrases are at least 3 letters long, the longest being 14 letters.
  • If you are having trouble printing it on a single page, here is a link to a graphic version.

Cheers
