Default What Got You Started With Cryptograms

The newspaper cryptoquips were my first introduction and I was hooked right away. While I'm not bad at crossword puzzles, I was always a bit thrown because I think I like the patterns of words and I'm good at recognizing those patterns. In part, I'm a speech language pathologist because I have a love for language and speech, reading, writing, spelling (yes, spelling) and words in general. Cryptograms are just fun patterns to me. I bought many cryptogram books over the years and the ones I always liked best were those that had quotes. The ones that were super-challenging, such as tongue twisters, or ones where the words all started with the same letter, or contained obscure words, were not my forte' and I still don't enjoy them. So many wonderful people on this site and such fun.
