FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

Thanks for stopping by today. What do you do to help stimulate your brain and keep your mind sharp?


  1. I just received my first adult comic books yesterday for my birthday. Those are challenging enough. I told my husband it's good I didn't pursue art after high school because I so want to shade everything to perfection but I don't know how.

  2. This is a really interesting way to think about keeping our brains active and engaged, Mason. And, let's face it, it's fun to pick up Crayolas! Thanks for sharing.

  3. You reminded me that I bought an adult coloring book some time ago. Obviously I need to stimulate my brain otherwise, I wouldn't have forgotten about it!!!!

  4. Ugh, those things make my brain hurt!! Maybe because it is growing?!?!? lol! -

  5. I color frequently but I don't think my brain is any younger lol catchatwithcarenandcody

  6. Hi Mason - I've never been able to get my head round colouring books - but I do note the enthusiasm ... interesting ideas here ... the brain needs stimulating that's for certain.

    I have got here (somewhere!) Betty Edwards' book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" - which at some stage I must read/ look at ...

    I'd rather do something else ... but have noted Anastasia Catris' thoughts ... and your review - cheers Hilary
