I'd think, it's what you call a 'Schmöker' in German - it seems there might be no adequate English word for it...

my interpretation would be like "a thick, heavy book you enjoy to read for a good amount of worth your time"

winterer Daily subscriber Rated puzzle: Moderate Best completion time: 14:20 Time on first attempt: 21:49 Used 'show wrong moves' Used 'check puzzle' when incorrect
My guess: it's a photo album. The title being a non-trivial pun.

In English there is a phrase, 'light reading', so it's just a play on that - since it's clearly a very heavy book in the picture.

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
