Need a break from reading but want to keep your entertainment literary?
We have a few suggestions.
Poetry In America celebrated the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman’s birth with, among other things, a Whitman-themed crossword puzzle.
Fans of other writers and poets have similar opportunities, thanks to the online game Dear Reader, which prompts you to reassemble passages from literary works.
(Psst: The Digital Reader shared an infographic of the first lines of classic novels, in case you want to create a cheat sheet or refresh your memory of possible content!)
Prefer offline entertainment? Play detective with Dear Holmes, a mystery experience that will request your help solving a case and send you clues via snail mail.
These latter games are described in more detail in the New York Times.
