Creative Brain Teaser

I don’t know who to credit with this great puzzle. My cousin sent it to me and I liked it, as once I got through the first two sentences it became easy and fun. I hope you enjoy. Thanks to the once who created it. Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer’s is a long, long, ways down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you. Only very good minds can read the RED and GREEN WORDS. This is weird, but interesting!  7H15 M3554G3 53RV35 7O PR0V3 H0W 0UR M1ND5 C4N D0 4M4Z1NG 7H1NG5! 1MPR3551V3 7H1NG5! 1N 7H3 B3G1NN1NG 17 WA5 H4RD BU7 N0W, 0N 7H15 LIN3 Y0UR M1ND 1S R34D1NG 17 4U70M471C4LLY W17H 0U7 3V3N 7H1NK1NG 4B0U7 17, B3 PROUD! 0NLY C3R741N P30PL3 C4N R3AD 7H15.

I’m going to share the first part, as it is something that is quite clear on e-books.  Dear Publisher Folk, Friends & Family: Ginny Grimsley ( is a book publicist with “News and Experts” who routinely submit review copies from the author/publisher clients to the Midwest Book Review. Recently she sent me fascinating and informative article by Kim Staflund on pricing considerations and conditions for digital books, along with permission to share it with my own “Jim Cox Report” readership.

By Hiral Shah Stow your baggage. In over 30 years of train travel, I’ve never checked a sack. Just convey it on and hurl it up onto the rack over the seat or wedge it into the triangular space between consecutive seats. I’ve seen Turkish families moving all their common products from Germany back to Turkey without checking a thing. Individuals gripe about the watchmen in the European train stations. I believe they’re extraordinary — I’ve never utilized one.   Be canny with your packs. I accept each train has a criminal wanting to get a pack. Store your gear inside...

Self-publishers need just 2-3 weeks to have a book printed. The time to publish an eBook is just a click. Think about your book. How long before a portion of the information will go out of date?
