Full confession time. I got a Kindle for my birthday last August. That’s not the confession. I use it almost every day. That’s not the confession, either.

The confession is that I spend more time that I care to admit playing…Every Word on my Kindle. It’s a word game, where you’re given seven letters and have to unscramble letters to make words, and you have to use all seven letters to go on to the next level.

I’m not going to say I’m obsessed, but it’s close. It’s the perfect game while I’m playing the waiting game (at the doc’s office, at the kids’ school…). Plus, I love, love, love word games, going back to when I was little and played Boggle with my family. I still love Boggle, and if it ever comes out on Kindle, I might never get anything done. (There's also Shuffled Row on Kindle, but I don't think it's as fun.)

I’m also a huge fan of word searches—and have been for as long as I remember. It’s a love that I passed on to my kids. If they don’t get word search puzzle books in their stockings at Christmas, Santa hears about it!

All in all, as far as obsessions go, it’s not too bad of one. But even still, I should probably cut back a little bit—before the tendonitis kicks in.

How about you? Are you a fan of word puzzles? Anything you want to confess?
