NPR's Puzzlemaster Will Shortz quizzes one of our listeners, and has a challenge for everyone at home.
Challenge from Sept. 11: From listener Michael Shteyman of Baltimore: Name a country somewhere in the world. You can change its first letter to name a well-known island. Or, you can change its third letter to name another well-known island. What country is it?
Answer: Mali... Bali and Maui.
Winner: Dr. Ron Eisenberg from Tiburon, Ca.
Challenge from Sept. 18: Name a well-known book in seven letters. Hint: it's spelled as a solid word. And it's so well known that many people can "quote" from it by heart. Add three letters to the end of this title and the result will name a late writer and TV personality, with four letters in the first name and six letters in the last. What book is it and who is this celebrity?
