Years ago I read as many of Agatha Christie’s books that I could find. Now I’m taking part in the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge and reading (or re-reading) her books. Listed below are the books I’ve read so far. I’ve reviewed them all except for A Pocketful of Rye and The Seven Dials Mystery

  1. The Mysterious Affair at Styles €“ 1920
  2. The Seven Dials Mystery €“ 1929
  3. Peril at End House €“ 1932
  4. Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? €“ 1934
  5. Hercule Poirot’s Christmas – 1938
  6. The Body in the Library €“ 1942
  7. The Hollow – 1946
  8. Crooked House €“ 1949
  9. A Pocketful of Rye €“ 1953
  10. Dead Man’s Folly €“ 1956

I’ve also read two books of her short stories:

  1. The Thirteen Problems (short stories) – 1933

  • Murder on the Orient Express – 1934
  • The ABC Murders – 1936
  • Death on the Nile – 1937
  • Appointment with Death – 1938

  1. Margaret – You’ve read an impressive number of Christie’s books! You’ve got some good ones coming up on your list, too : ). Death on the Nile is one of my favorites.


  2. I’ve been on a little Agatha hiatus, for no reason that I can come up with. I guess there have just been a lot of other books I’ve been reading these days. I do miss her though.


  3. Congratulations! You are making great progress on the challenge. I’m congratulating myself at the same time as we are at the same place. I just finished Murder On the Orient Express (review in a few days) and really liked it. It’s the best one I’ve read so far. I look forward to reading of your reaction.


  4. Well done Margaret. You are right about the blog carnival site being inaccessible. It still seems to be down. Hope it gets corrected soon.
