This past week the plan was to read an Agatha Christie book per day as part of the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge and Agatha Christie Week, which was Sept. 13 through today, and then posting a review at the end of the day here on this blog.
So how did I do? In short, okay. I read six of the eight planned books and reviewed four books:
- Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? also The Boomerang Clue
- Three Act Tragedy also Murder in Three Acts
- Death in the Clouds also Death in the Air
- The A.B.C. Murders also The Alphabet Murders
So not bad, but not great either.
I also participated in the Agatha Christie Week Blog Tour sponsored by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise.
The tour started last week and continues through Tuesday:
16 September: Me: Agatha Christie in Music: Sublime? …er…well…not always…
Later, this week, I will post the reviews for the other two books I read: Cards on the Table and Murder in Mesopotamia. I also plan on reading the other two to which I didn’t get: Poirot Loses A Client (aka Dumb Witness) and Death On The Nile.
In the meantime, I will be finishing up The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle, of which I was in the middle at the beginning of this week, and also read The Brief History of The Dead by Kevin Brockheimer. The former is for the Baker Street Challenge, in which I’m participating; the latter, for a book club at our local library which is meeting Tuesday.
After that, I will be taking an extended break from reading Agatha Christie. What will I be reading after that? Continuing The Red Dahlia by Lynda La Plante, of which I’m also in the middle. Beyond that, we’ll just have to see.
