Each week, Talk Wordy to Me challenges readers to beat the word nerd in a quiz challenge and post their scores in the comments below. This week isn't quite a quiz, it's the classic PopCap game Bookworm. It's a word search and a race against burning letters. Be sure to note your score before your final word; it doesn't tell you what it was after you lose (you lose when a burning tile reaches the bottom and isn't used).
I scored a 69,630. Here's the game.
