Finished this over a several months just reading 2 stories a few times a week. I sped my reading up for the #novelnovember readathon. Began this week on p.248, finished the book, reading 150 pages. It was fun to be in Miss Marple‘s village world. Seemed as if her words were sparse, as well as her images. I could picture her characters, places, landscapes, etc. perfectly with her imagery.

I realized after I checked this out that I‘ve read the stories in various collections already. I love Miss Marple though, so it was fun to read them again & be reminded of the outcome of each mystery. Unlike some of Christie‘s collections, I enjoyed all of these stories & getting to revisit the fun side characters in Miss Marple‘s world. #scarathlon #teamslaughter @Clwojick 20 stories-301 pts

JazzFeathers It's been such a long time since last l read Miss Marple. But l remember liking her far more than Poirot 😁 3mo

Then she tidied up the church, slipped into a pew and knelt for a few moments to say her prayers before running to the vicarage to attack the piled-up chores of two neglected days.

Reading the first Miss Marple short story :)

MsMelissa The bookmark!! I must find one of those for my husband. He‘s a huge Poirot fan (also Ms. Marple, I wonder if I can find one for her, too?). 1y
Juliwyant The bookmark is from Janes Tiny Things & she does make a Miss Marple one! She is on facebook under bergenplace. I got sent several of her bookmarks in a secretsister exchange. Love them! 1y

I mean it‘s Miss Marple. Luckily most of these short stories don‘t show off the worst of Christie - the racism, xenophobia, homophobia, though a little of it creeps in now and then. But Miss Marple! I only wish there had been more of her and less of Poirot. I needed a little break, and these short stories served, as Christie might write, admirably.

... It is a very favourite place, that. There by the jasmine hedge. That is where the milkman asked Annie if he could put up the banns.”
“Dash it all, Aunt Jane,” said Raymond, “ don‘t spoil all the romance. Joyce and I aren‘t like the milkman and Annie.”
“That is where you make a mistake, dear,” said Miss Marple. “Everybody is very much alike, really. But fortunately, perhaps, they don‘t realize it.”

My dad's favourite author next to #JackLondon is #AgathaChristie especially Poirot so he will be very pleased to see me reading some Miss Marple over the holidays.

Btw, little know fact about yours truly: im about 60% through a course in certification as a private investigator so I always enjoy a good murder mystery❓👍

Chrissyreadit Fun!!! Good luck! 3y

The colors on this cover are fantastic! Although I always like the novels better, Christie preferred Miss Marple in short story form and it's easy to see why in this charming collection. This contains the full text of The Tuesday Club Murders.

Squished into a middle seat, but Miss Marple will distract me!

Wishing everyone a great #readathon tomorrow! I've had to miss both this year thanks to visits to see my family. I usually only see them about twice a year...what are the chances they'd both be readathon weekends?! 😫

Loved this book. If you‘re unfamiliar with the short story form, or you shy away from it, check this one out. For one, it‘s Agatha Christie. Two, it‘s the smoothest, palatable delivery of the form that I will now recommend to anyone who is looking to dive into it. Three, each story is fun from start to finish. #amreading #bookworm #bibliophile #bookish #booknerdigans #bookblogger #tsundoku #greatreads #readmorebooks #coolgirlsread

Some of these stories were very interesting but some were kind of dull. Altogether I did enjoy reading these mini mysteries. I can‘t wait to read more about Miss Marple. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #MissMarpleTheCompleteShortStories #AgathaChristie #MissMarple #book #books #bookish #bookishfeature #bookishfeatures #booksoflitsy #bookobsessed #bookobsession #bookoholic #bookoholics #bookporn #bookperson #bookpeople #bookpassion #bookphoto #bookphotos #bookphotograph

Some of my favourite. My edition of The Complete Miss Marple Short Stories from The Folio Society was a gift from my godmother (she‘s not really, but as good as), and it has illustrations by Andrew Davidson and introduction by Stella Duffy. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend reading the introduction, it‘s almost as enjoyable as the short stories themselves!

Miss Marple is on the case. Actually she's on several. This is a collection of stories pulled from other books like the Tuesday Club, etc. Fun to visit with Miss Marple and see her take on things. Only clunker was looks like the name of her nephew Raymond's wife changed. (Joyce to Joan) But all in all fun visit.
