This is a series of 5 books. Some can be found on amazon, but if you really like them, you’ll have to go second hand bookshop diving. The first book is called “Curious Cryptograms”. Inside the book are three stories with each paragraph numbered. All three stories are encrypted. At the beginning of each story is a hint page. But the hints will only give you two letters per paragraph. And each paragraph is encrypted separately. So having the solution to paragraph 1 will not aid you in solving paragraph 2. At the back of the book are solutions for all the puzzles, so basically each story written in decoded English.
Honestly, I had no use for cryptograms before. But the first book in this series captured my imagination to the point that I went and found the other 4 to buy. There are only two paragraphs per page, so there is room to write your letters above or below the encrypted version and there is some room for writing possibilities or notes.
I Apologize for all grammatical and spelling errors as well as missing words and words that make no sense in the provided context. My IPad hates me.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
