Agatha Christie is a name familiar to a lot of people. She is one of the most read and beloved authors in the world. She was my introduction into the world of adult literature and mysteries, and this year, she’s coming back with a whole new look when HarperCollins reissues all the books in the Christie collection. Almost all of the books with the exception of the Tommy and Tuppence books will be out this summer. Tommy and Tuppence will follow in Winter 2012
HarperCollins is proud to now be Agatha Christie’s global publisher and will be reissuing all of her books in beautiful trade paperback editions. These wonderful authentic editions are exactly as Christie wrote them using the original UK texts. Read all of the Christie mysteries including the Hercule Poirot Mysteries, the Miss Marple Mysteries, and the Tommy and Tuppence Mysteries. And don’t miss a single one of Christie’s stand-alone novels and short stories.
Very exciting. In celebration, 5 bloggers (me included) will be hosting read-alongs of Christie’s work over the summer (from Memorial Day to Labors Day. Sign up information and information on books for all the areas can be found at the different blogs. We would love for you to join in on the readalongs of some of your favorites books or to discover some new ones. This will be my first time reading the Poirot books, so I am eager to dive into the books and the movies.
