Extra Word Sudoku (Qudoku!) Puzzle for Sunday, 2/1/2009

Extra Word Sudoku (Qudoku!) Puzzle for Sunday, 2/1/2009

I came across a small book while grocery shopping this weekend that immediately caught my attention. It’s “instant karma: 8,879 ways to give yourself and others good fortune right now” by Dr. Barbara Ann Kipfer. You may have heard of her because of her bestselling “14,000 Things to be Happy About,” or any of more than two dozen other books she’s written. She holds PhD’s in linguistics and archaeology, as well as a master’s degree in Buddhist studies; and she’s also Chief Lexicographer for and, two Web sites I use a great deal.

“instant karma” is a small-format book, about 4” square, from Workman Publishing. It’s just a delight! It’s chock full of (8,879!) one-liners to create good karma. Just what each of us needs, so we can open it up to a random page anytime we want, and feel the good effect!

I was inspired to create a Karmic Qudoku puzzle set for you to solve. Maybe I’ll do this once a month…we could all use a constant dose of good karma!
