Hey #GroupN. What do we think about these?

If none of them work for you, let me know. I own all of her books and planned to buy a clean copy for #lmpbc, so as long as an edition is still readily available, I will pick whatever you want to read, although I would prefer to avoid another Poirot.

katy4peas I have the last seance but haven‘t read it yet. I‘m willing to donate that one to the group as a pick if we want! Otherwise, I‘m good with any of these! 😁 3y
DGRachel @katy4peas Seance is the only one I wouldn‘t have to buy another copy of! I‘d love to pick that one if everyone else is okay with it. 3y
katy4peas Sounds good to me! 3y
ads0123 Seance works for me! 3y

Here are my choices for #lmpbc
Let me know which sounds best. #groupn
@ads0123 @katy4peas @DGRachel

DGRachel I‘ve read Vicarage and Blue Train. I wouldn‘t mind rereading Vicarage, but I did not enjoy Blue Train. 3y
katy4peas I read paddington a long time ago and possibly vicarage. I would reread both though and am up for any of these! 😁 3y
ads0123 These all look good, but I think I‘ll choose Destination Unknown! 3y
Jerdencon Ok - let‘s go with destination unknown! Will order it now! @ads0123 @DGRachel @katy4peas 3y

And here's the upcoming schedule! Again, I really apologize for dropping the ball so badly. I love my #agathachristieclubR2 friends!

@TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle @Linsy @AnneCecilie @Laughterhp @Lizpixie @hes7 @Charityann @rubyslippersreads @janeycanuck

Librarybelle No worries! 😁 3y
TheAromaofBooks Also, I totally meant to say in the other post that obviously real-life family stuff is way more important than discussing Agatha Christie on Litsy!!! So no worries on that, but I am excited to see the group revived because I really do enjoy the discussions a lot!!! 3y
TheAromaofBooks Second side note - the Wikipedia list of Christie's works has a nice chart showing the alternate titles - I know my collection seems to be half UK titles and half US titles so I get easily confused!!! - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agatha_Christie_bibliography 3y
See All 6 Comments
Laughterhp No worries. Family stuff is definitely more important than Litsy (like @TheAromaofBooks said). It looks like I didn‘t mess up the order too badly. I thought Murder at the Orient Express was next, but wasn‘t sure. 3y
janeycanuck It‘s a lot to post discussion questions every month even without family stuff going on. Great to hear things are doing better for you. 3y

UGH friends, I totally screwed up. I had a family emergency at the end of September that lasted a while (I had to go help out my sister's family for a few weeks after major surgery - she's all good now!), and I just forgot about #agathachristieclubR2. I remembered after the holidays and have had it on my list of things to get done ever since. Here's the schedule of books that we missed, and I'll be posting questions over the next few days. ⬇️

ferskner QUESTION: There are a couple of books I've skipped on the official list on agathachristie.com because they're not available in the US. I know that not all of us are based here (most are, I think?), so how do you feel about that? The same stories show up in later in collections that aren't available in the UK. Thoughts? 3y
Librarybelle I just looked over the list, and I think you‘re fine. I noticed some of the UK publications also have a “published in the US as —“ after the title. I‘m so far behind on reading these! 3y
See All 10 Comments
TheAromaofBooks I'm fine with whatever you think - I actually have been reading these because I love Christie so much & one book a month of hers is about perfect, although I think I missed The Thirteen Problems. It looks like some of the titles on that list that you skipped are short story collections that include stories by other authors, so I think it's totally fine to give them a miss. It does get complicated when there are differences in US/UK titles. 3y
Laughterhp I think I‘ve messed up the order I‘ve been reading them. I found The Thirteen Problems (which I skipped but just requested from my library), but I can‘t find Hound of Death, but it says Not US, so I‘m assuming that‘s why. 3y
janeycanuck I‘m not in the US so have had no problems getting all the titles so far. Those months could just be a month break if someone can‘t find a title? A break now and then never hurts! 3y
ferskner @Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks @Laughterhp @janeycanuck everyone loves a break! Okay, we'll keep the schedule as I've posted it this time since I can't get the UK titles without ordering them, but in the future I'll let everyone know that they can read that if they have access, but I won't post questions unless it's available in the US. I need to make an overly-complicated spreadsheet for myself so I can make sure I get everything read. 3y
TheAromaofBooks @Laughterhp - This wiki page actually does a great job explaining what's US/UK/short story collections/etc - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agatha_Christie_bibliography - So it looks like the short stories from The Hound of Death & The Listerdale Mystery were published The Golden Ball & Other Stories and The Witness for the Prosecution & Other Stories... but all jumbled up! I had no idea haha 3y
TheAromaofBooks @ferskner - I'm so here for spreadsheets!! One of my favorite xkcd comics has a girl sitting at her desk saying, “I started the day with lots of problems, but now, after hours and hours of work, I have lots of problems in a SPREADSHEET.“ And it basically summarizes my life 😂 3y
ferskner @TheAromaofBooks LOL you totally understand!!!! 3y

I told myself I was NOT going to sign up for #LMPBC again, I have to much to do(read). But, who am I kidding, I LOVE book clubs. I started a #GroupM for anyone interested in doing Agatha Christie novels. Anyone want to me?

THE most awesome find for a writer!! 🧡🖤 #lovehalloween


Agatha Christie fans: my husband and I are thinking of doing a buddy read. We love suspense and neither of us have ever read Agatha Christie. Looking for suggestions on which of her books to start with? Thanks

I unfortunately turned the big 40 today. Not the biggest birthday fan but check out the Christie themed cards my bestie and family gave me 😍

MicheleinPhilly Happy Birthday! Also the 40s aren‘t bad at all. I‘m 2.5 years in and with the exception of events outside of my control, they‘re fabulous. Plus now you get to say “I‘m in my 40s, I‘m too old for this shit!” 4y

Saw this on @Librarybelle ‘s page and couldn‘t resist sharing! I‘ve been reading the Poirot books randomly as I come across them, and lately have been building up a collection of the series. @ferskner - I‘ll be joining in to #AgathaChristieClubR2 if it‘s not too late!

Lady_Tigana_20 I‘ve read all the Miss Marples. ❤️ 5y
laur89 @Lady_Tigana_20 I‘ve only read some of the Poirot series, but I figure this‘ll encourage me to explore the Marple and Tommy & Tuppence series too! 5y

Repost for @ferskner :
2 yrs ago, @Bambolina_81 had the fantastic idea for the #agathachristieclub, where Littens could read Dame Agatha's books in publication order, 1/month. It's been a while since the club was active, but we're starting it up again! & starting over. Join us in Sept w/ The Mysterious Affair at Styles, w/ a discussion at the end of the month. Find the complete list at https://www.agathachristie.com/stories #agathachristieclubR2

Millesent I will give it a try! I have not read Agatha Christie either. But finished a book called Mayham at the Orient express, which is really cute, and it was based on this book, and listened to a podcast the other day from 2015 that reviewed murder on the Orient express. I am meant to do something with Agatha! 5y

Do you love Agatha Christie? Or, maybe you‘ve been dying (haha) to try one of her books? A couple years ago, there was a group of Littens who planned to read Christie‘s works in publication order. @ferskner is reviving the group! Starting in September, we‘ll begin at the beginning, with The Mysterious Affair at Styles. One book per month, with discussion at the end. Head to @ferskner ‘s original post for more info. #agathachristieclubr2

ferskner Thanks for reposting! 5y

ferskner @DGRachel I'm not starting over either, but I'm going to participate in the discussions and maybe reread some favorites. I'll be using the All About Agatha podcast to remind me of plot points. I'm looking forward to the break to catch up on some other series! 5y

Question for all the #AgathaChristie fans out there. I've always been interesting in her and her books, but there are SO many of them it's hard to know where to start. I don't know if there is an order they're supposed to go in or if you can just jump in wherever. Any suggestions would be awesome. #suggestions #wheretostart #guidanceneeded #booksuggestions

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Good question! 6y
Faibka I would say, just jump in! I think I started with “Murder on the Orient Express” and went on from there in no particular order. However you feel like it should be good :) (edited) 6y
GingerAntics @Faibka okay just so I know there isn't a specific order they're supposed to go in. @Riveted_Reader_Melissa have you read any of them or are you kind of in the same position as I am? 6y
See All 15 Comments
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GingerAntics Nope, I‘ve never read any either. I was thinking of jumping in with the one nominated for the Great American Read, figuring that must be her best if it was nominated and therefore if I was going to like her writing that would be a great barometer. 6y
GingerAntics @Riveted_Reader_Melissa oh I hadn't thought of that approach. That makes a lot of sense. 6y
Faibka @GingerAntics @Riveted_Reader_Melissa “And Then...” is definitely one of her best. “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd” would be me my second favorite but you don‘t get to understand her brilliance until the very end of it and then your jaw drops. I‘ve seen some readers approach her work chronologically but I‘ve decided I have such little time and she wrote so much that I rather tackle her best work. That‘s just personal preference. Good luck and enjoy! 6y
GingerAntics @Faibka it's funny you mention that. I was thinking of taking it chronology since that's how I usually approach things, but then I looked at the sheer volume of her works that thought that might not be the best course of action. I'm not sure anyone could get to it all. 6y
Faibka @GingerAntics yes, and to be honest not all of them are great (not that I claim to have read all of course) and might deter someone from enjoying the best ones. The other advantage of “And then...” is that it‘s a standalone. If reading her detective Poirot series it might be better to start with the first book that introduces the character 6y
GingerAntics @Faibka I've seen a few of those, that's what made me wonder if there were several series or if most are stand alone. 6y
Faibka @GingerAntics I should say first I‘m in no way a Christie expert, but yes, I would say her most famous ones are from her series featuring Poirot and then the series featuring Ms. Marple 6y
GingerAntics @Faibka I'm actually finding several of her most famous ones for free on Apple Books, so I don't see why I can't explore her. With her large body of work, I can imagine it would be hard to be a Christie expert. 6y
Faibka @GingerAntics I agree, that would require a lot of time and devotion! It‘s great that you can find them for free, and yes it‘s very much worth while. “And then...” is hauntingly atmospheric and can give you a good feel for her work with the only drawback that reading her best might downgrade the rest but there are many other good ones. You can also start with the first books on her series and then jump to the better ones. 6y
GingerAntics @Faibka that is a thought. If they series don't require a complete adherence to the order after a certain point that opens the door to picking and choosing to make the most of the time available. 6y
Faibka @GingerAntics that‘s kind of my philosophy since I‘m not planning on reading the entirety of her work and I have so many other reads. Of the Poirot ones I‘ve read I didn‘t feel impaired but not having read the previous ones, only maybe in a mention of a character here or there, if I remember right. You can later check out the BBC TV adaptation starting David Suchet as Poirot, brilliantly done! 6y
GingerAntics @Faibka oh I've heard the BBC adaptation is just brilliant. That's part of why I want to read some of her work. 6y

OutsmartYourShelf @ferskner Glad you received it 🙂 No notification I was tagged in a post though, which is strange. 6y
ferskner That happened to me on another swap! I can't figure it out. 6y
OutsmartYourShelf @ferskner Beginning to panic a little now as 4 days to go and nothing has arrived 😱 Is it trackable? 6y
ferskner Gah! I'll double check. It was sent on 9/14 in the afternoon, so maybe it didn't go out until Saturday? There were also hurricanes in the US that weekend so maybe that slowed things down. I'll check to see what info I have for tracking. 6y
OutsmartYourShelf @ferskner Of course! Sorry, I didn‘t factor in the weather issues. 6y
ferskner I don't live near the coast anymore so I wouldn't have thought that it would make a difference, but it's definitely possible that there's a general slowdown going that direction. :) Also I sent them via the mailroom at my office, so maybe that also means they weren't picked up until Monday? I sure hope that's the case. 6y
ferskner I can't find any tracking info. :( My office isn't great about providing that, and I'm sure I forgot to ask. 6y

@BurghBookAddict second part... Do you like to have second hand editions aswell? If they are in good condition?

Burghbookaddict Yup, 2nd hand is fine with me! Are there any books of hers that you would like in particular? 6y
Sarah83 @BurghBookAddict I need to look up. In Germany some books aren't published within the last years, but there are also several about Agatha Christie which I don't own. 😊 6y
Burghbookaddict @Sarah83 Ok 😊 I just don't want to send you books you've already got 6y
Sarah83 @BurghBookAddict I did a little research and on my tbr here you find all the books about Agatha Christie I don't own. If you find anything like Sophie Hannah (I own one of her books) I would be interested in it aswell. Besides you can look at the classic crime editions of the British library. You saw the posts about the ones I own? 😊 6y

@BurghBookAddict First part of my collection. As you see, I already own many of her books...

One has to pay the rent, but being a writer isn‘t about sales, or the tiring climb of branding. It‘s a determined, loving labor. #writing #writers #vocation #writerslife

I was not going to do another swap. I own all of Dame Agatha‘s books (well, technically @dsfisher owns them, but they‘re in my house and I‘m the sole heir, so...🤣🤣), but @LeahBergen tagged me and I cannot resist a direct appeal. 😳

rubyslippersreads I couldn‘t resist this one either. 😊 6y
Cinfhen The power of @LeahBergen 🙌🏻 6y

LeslieO @LeahBergen is a force! 6y
LeahBergen @DGRachel @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @LeslieO @rubyslippersreads 😂😂😂 😂 Well, I‘m just going to have to screenshot this conversation and show the husband. It will prove that SOME people hold me in high regard. 😉 6y

Sophoclessweetheart @jenniferw88 Oh yes! I have that one too. Cute book. Thank you 😊 6y
LeahBergen I signed up! Although I didn‘t receive a confirmation email when I submitted the form? 🤔 Did you receive it? 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @LeahBergen A confirmation email? I didn‘t know google forms did that. Sorry. I‘ll take a check. I‘ve got everyone else‘s okay so I‘m sure it‘s fine sweetie xx 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @LeahBergen Yes dear. It‘s all there and okay. X 6y
LeahBergen @Sorceryandswords Great! I just wanted to check as I‘ve received an email copy of my responses for other swaps. Thanks! 😘 6y
Sophoclessweetheart I need ONE or THREE MORE sign ups in order for everyone to have a match so I‘m tagging you incase you might be interested. Please don‘t feel obliged, if I can‘t make the numbers I will either cancel the swap or not take part myself so the numbers work. @literarywisdom @BookishBrooklyn @Sarah83 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @Sarah83 Thank you so much Sarah! 🙊🖤 6y
rubyslippersreads @Sarah83 So glad we talked you into it. 😊 6y

One of #thegreatest , in my opinion, is Agatha Christie. It saddens me I‘m so far behind on the #agathachristieclub at the moment, but definitely plan to continue reading the books in order. I‘ll catch up! #getmovin

I‘ve slowly started to collect Christie‘s books. Here is my shelf that has most of what I currently own. The plan is to get a Book case devoted to her and have it in my bedroom...I‘m running out of shelves in my library!

Kaye How many are there in total and how close are you to having them all ? 6y
eanderson Wow! 😊 6y
Librarybelle @Kaye Good question! Between novels and short story collections, she wrote over 100. She also wrote biographies, plays and other types of writings. I‘m focusing on all her mystery writings, which still puts the number to around 100 (she also wrote romances). As to what I own...I‘m not sure. I have most out of what I own out of boxes, though there are a few floating around. I think I have roughly 50, though I have multiple editions of some. 6y

Librarybelle @eanderson 😊 Thanks to Book Outlet for having, at one point, dozens of them for only a couple dollars! 6y
tammysue Love it! 😁 6y
keys_on_fire I‘ve never read her, but I‘ve picked up a couple in my recent thrift store funds. I‘m excited to try her out! 6y

So, I‘m really enjoying doing the #JaneAustenSwap that @mabell and @sprainedbrain are hosting. It‘s been fun and JA is one of my top three favourite authors. I thought it would be fun to do swaps for my other top three authors - Agatha Christie and The Brontë sisters. Very early planning stages and I‘ve never hosted a swap before but what do you think? Anyone up for it? #agathachristie #bronte #brontesisters #litsyswaps

Sarah83 Sounds great 😍🤗 6y
Sarah83 If you want to start one, I would like to help you organising this. 🤗 6y

litmuggle1 I would join either. 6y
batsy Thank for the tag. Sounds very tempting! But will have to think about it as having just joined one I am also a little broke 😂 @Sarah83 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @Sarah83 Oh! That‘s lovely. Thank you Sarah. Xx 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @batsy I won‘t be doing it soon because I‘ve just done the Jane Austen Swap. But it‘s something I‘d like to plan for a few months time x 6y
batsy Oh, that's great! Then I'll definitely keep an eye out ❤️ 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @batsy 😁😁💛💛 6y
mabell Dame Agatha ❤️❤️❤️ 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @mabell A wonderful woman. 💛💛 6y
sprainedbrain I would definitely join a Brontë swap, and probably a Christie swap, too. I‘ve only read one of Agatha‘s so far, but intend to read more. As long as they aren‘t all at the same time... I‘m currently shopping for two swaps! ? 6y
sprainedbrain Oh and I‘m no expert on organizing but would be happy to help if needed. 😃 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @sprainedbrain Thank you Jenni! I‘m just seeing right now if enough people would want to take part. If there‘s enough then I‘m planning to start taking sign ups maybe June/July time for one and July/August for the other. But we shall see. I only can afford to one swap at a time with being a mum and a uni student. Lol. I‘ll let you know x 6y
rubyslippersreads Thanks for the tag, @sarah83. I'd participate in both, especially the Brontë sisters. 6y
LeahBergen Arghhhh! What are you doing to me?? 😂😂 I would be interested in both if (like you said) they are a couple of months from now and spaced out. 😄 @sarah83 6y
Sarah83 @LeahBergen sorry not sorry? 😂😍😘 6y
Sarah83 @rubyslippersreads thought you might like it. How do you feel today? 6y
rubyslippersreads @Sarah83 I'm actually starting to feel better. Thanks for asking. 😊 6y
rubyslippersreads I agree with @LeahBergen that it would be better to space them out. 6y
Sarah83 @rubyslippersreads Sounds great 😍😘 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen They will definitely be in a couple of months and definitely apart because I myself can‘t afford to do more than one every so many months. 😁💛 They won‘t be until after the JAS is over either as I‘m currently doing that one. So I‘m thinking June/July or July/August time 👌🏻💋 6y
LeahBergen I think quite a few of us commenting here are doing the #JaneAustenSwap (and will want to do these other swaps, too 😂😂). I think there must be some “literary love” correlation between these authors! 😄 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @LeahBergen Definitely 😹😹 All three are my favourites. 6y
BookishMe Just saw this!! OMG omg... Definitely YAY for Agatha Christie swap! And why leave the Bronté sisters out?? Lol 6y
BookishMe @Wanderingwithwords timeline sounds good... Spread my spending ;D 6y
kspenmoll I would be interested too! 6y
Sophoclessweetheart @BookishMe @kspenmoll Thank you! I‘ll be preparing sign ups soon x 6y
BookishMe 👍🏽 👍🏽 Thanks for your efforts! 💗💗 6y

Kind of like "Taxi Cab Confessions" but without the improbable sex stories or taxis.

#LitsyConfessions #IKnowICouldGoogleItButIdRatherAskAllOfYou

bobregina Murder on the Orient Express is a classic, but And then there were none is still my all time favorite! 6y
dariazeoli I‘m with you - yet to read Christie! 😬 6y
TricksyTails Same! I was thinking of just starting from her very first book. 6y
See All 24 Comments
KarenUK I agree with @bobregina ... my other favorites are Death on the Nile and The murder of Roger Ackroyd 👍💕 6y
bobregina @KarenUK they are so good either! It‘s hard to pick just one or two, they‘re all pretty great 6y
emtobiasz Ooh how exciting! I don't think she's one you need to read in order-- any of the ones recommended would be great entries! (Most of these are Hercule Poirot, although she has other series too, and And Then There Were None is a standalone!) 6y
Sarah83 At #agathachristieclub hosted by @Bambolina_81 we read all her books in order of appearance. I personally love Miss Marple more than Monsieur Poirot, so I would start with this one 6y
Libby1 @cathysaid and @dariazeoli - what you treat you have in store for you! 6y
Betty Read this decades ago and still remember who did it. 6y
DGRachel I have to vote for ATTWN. It‘s my favorite of hers and I‘ve read it multiple times. 6y

cathysaid You guys rock! @bobregina @KarenUK @rubyslippersreads @emtobiasz @Sarah83 @Libby1 @Betty @DGRachel thank you so much for the input - so much better than Google. I'm excited to get started! 6y
cathysaid @dariazeoli @TricksyTails How did we make it this far? 😳😜 6y
TricksyTails I even picked up the first book at the library. Just never got around to it! Have you decided which to start with? 6y
cathysaid @TricksyTails I'm not sure yet. Maybe what they have available at the library. I did find this list on agathachristie.com http://agatha-christie-cms-production.s3.amazonaws.com/archive/pdfs/christie-rea... 6y
TricksyTails That's the one I plan to follow! 6y
erzascarletbookgasm @KarenUK those two are among my top five AC ! 🙌 6y
Jaimelire Agree with other posts...Murder on the Orient Express or And Then There Were None (edited) 6y
Bambolina_81 @cathysaid This is the list we follow for the Agatha Christie club! It would be great to hear your thoughts. To see what we've thought so far just click on #agathachristieclub 6y
cathysaid @erzascarletbookgasm @Jaimelire Thanks! As it turns out, the only eBook my library had available is And Then There Were None so I'm starting there. Fate decided 😁 6y
cathysaid @Bambolina_81 Thank you! I'll check it out! 6y
MaryT465 And Then There Were None is on my all time favorite books list, genre aside 6y
cathysaid @MaryT465 It was quite good and easy to see how she's regarded as a master. 6y
