Fun With Words!

Filed under: Word Games — susanbright @ 11:28 am

There are so many great book sites! One of my favorite is Book Browse. Not only can you read about books and win books, but every two weeks they post a new wordplay. Some are quite challenging! It’s under Fun, and it really IS FUN!

Last week’s wordplay had me stumped, so I went to my mother for help. She is amazingly good at these and she figured it out one… two… three! Do you know the answer? You can post the answer  to this one as this contest has ended, and the answer is already up on the Book Browse sight!

H W Pays T P C T T

Thank you Esther. Tha answer is………He who pays the piper calls the tune!

 Below is this weeks wordplay. If you figure out the answer, be sure to log on to Book Browse and enter the contest…… but please do not post the answer on this blog! We don’t want to spoil the fun for others!

Here is this weeks wordplay:

~ It’s T B’s K ~

Esther figured out this one also and since the contest is over, the answer is……It’s the bee’s knees

 Be sure to check out Book Browse for book news and more wordplay!
