Top Ten Tuesday: First Edition Agatha Christie Book Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. For the rules see her blog. The topic this week is a Book Cover Freebie.

How it works:

There’s a new topic every Tuesday. You create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list on that topic or one of your own if you wish and then link back to That Artsy Reader Girl so that others know where to find more information. If a weekly topic is listed as a “freebie”, you are invited to come up with your own topic. Sometimes she will give the freebie topic a theme, such as “love”, a season, or an upcoming holiday. That just means that you can come up with any topic you want that fits under that umbrella.

So today my top ten are twelve –

Twelve First Edition Agatha Christie book covers.

I’ve read all of Agatha Christie’s crime fiction novels and the links are to my posts – although the books I read were not first editions!

  1. Those covers are so evocative! I love them. I just started re-reading Christie and just finished The Clocks.


  2. I love these covers and I think I’ve read all the Christie books too. Not with these covers though. Makes me want to own all of them. LOL


  3. Aren’t they fabulous? I must admit I’ve seen pics of a lot of Christie covers but for some odd reason never any first editions, bet they’re worth a penny or two if you have any.


  4. This was great. “The Man in the Brown Suit” was the first Christie book I ever read, and the rest is history. I hardly ever see mention of it — but found it on your list here.

    The cover art seems pretty similar across the books. Except may be — “Lord Edgware Dies” (seems gaudier/ more modern-looking?).

    Wonderful theme for Top 10 Tuesday. My own had just been a tired put-together of TBR book covers!
