Borrowed this from my mother a few years back. My sister gave it to her for Christmas after we saw a documentary on competitive SCRABBLE. That such a thing exists is a little scary, but it has me wondering if there are any SCRABBLE clubs in my area I could check out.

I really enjoyed this book. At times it was a bit cryptic, but it made me want to play SCRABBLE and improve my game. Thanks to reading it, I've downloaded the SCRABBLE app to my iPod and have begun playing on Facebook as well.

Nancy Words With Friends is fun and highly addictive! You can also invite opponents from Facebook or choose random opponents.

Thanks for playing. :)
