The 1936 Club hosted by Karen at kaggsy’sbookishramblings and Simon at stuckinabook begins today. These are the books published in that year that I’ve already read:
- The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie
- Murder in Mesopotamia by Agatha Christie – I didn’t review it and am currently re-reading it.
- Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie
- Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier – I read this before I began blogging
- The Santa Klaus Murder by Mavis Doriel Hay
- South Riding by Winifred Holtby
- Death at the President’s Lodging by Michael Innes
- Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
- A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey
- Stowaway to Mars by John Wyndham, writing as John Beynon
There is just one book published in 1936 that own but haven’t read yet, Murder in Piccadilly by Charles Kingston. So I’ll be reading that this week along with re-reading Agatha Christie’s Murder in Mesopotamia that I first read in May 2012, because I never wrote a review post about it. And there are some short stories, first published in 1936 that I haven’t read yet, such as Problem at Sea, which is included in the short story collection, Poirot’s Early Cases, that I may get round to as well.

You’ve read quite a lot of 1936 books, Margaret! I’ll be interested in your review of Murder in Mesopotamia. And I think some of Christie’s short stories are excellent, so I hope you’ll get round to them.
Are there any books left for you to read from 1936? Just joking, but you do seem to have read a fair amount. With all of the Agatha Christie reads and rereads, I am very tempted to get some of her books again from the library.
I’m reading Murder in Mesopotamia at the moment too, so I’ll be interested to see your review. Apart from the Michael Innes, John Wyndham and Cards on the Table, I’ve read all the same 1936 books as you! It was a great year for publishing.
Some great books from 1936! Look forward to your thoughts on Murder in Picadilly!
A great round-up!
