Number puzzles find fans across the country

‘I’ve got two words for you: eraser pen.’

That’s the advice of international flight attendant Debbie Grant of Annapolis for anyone looking to join in on the latest puzzle craze, sudoku.

Gary Amoth, owner of Hard Bean Coffee & BookSellers in Annapolis, which stocks a host of sudoku titles, tells of one customer who bought a puzzle book at 3 p.m. and was still going strong trying to solve them at home four hours later – incinerating the family’s dinner.

Mr. Amoth is a sudoku fan himself, and has had the books in stock for about 2½ months. They’ve been selling well, though he thinks the craze really hasn’t even started yet. Christmas will be the time it really takes off, he predicted.
