Since my earliest memories, I have loved doing jigsaw puzzles. Now as an adult, working on a jigsaw puzzle has joined activities like building Legos, doing Pilates, playing Nintendo Switch, and watching TV in the “things I do to de-stress” category. But of all those activities, the only two that I can do while also listening to an audiobook are working on a jigsaw puzzle and Legos — and anything that I can do while also reading a book (especially when I’m super absorbed by one) wins out most days.
Thankfully, the world is filled with tons of great jigsaw puzzles and tons of amazing audiobooks. Do I naturally gravitate toward bookish jigsaw puzzles? Of course! And there are a lot — from settings in bookstores to ones inspired by actual classic books. I even sometimes add a jigsaw puzzle to my purchase when shopping at an indie bookstore (I bought Camilla d’Errico’s Hydie: A Pop Manga Jigsaw Puzzle from Harriett’s Bookshop) or at Barnes & Noble (Book Nerd 1,000-Piece Puzzle). If your fingers are itching to put together a jigsaw puzzle and your heart is always delighted by bookish things, here’s a list that includes mini puzzles and 500 pieces and 1,000 pieces. Bonus: there’s even a ghost, mermaids, and a unicorn!
