Celebrating 100 Years Of Agatha Christie’s Books

A tribute to my favourite Queen of Crime

by Carol Low

A little tribute to Dame Agatha Christie.

The Mysterious Affair At Styles was the very first book that launched Agatha Christie’s literary career. She wrote it during the First World War period while she was working as a nurse, and it was first published in 1920.

It was her very first Hercule Poirot book. The last Poirot book, Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case was published in 1975, a year before her death.

This edition of the book marks the 100th year of her works, still very much in demand and loved by millions of readers. She has written 74 books and sold over 2 billion copies.

I don’t remember how or when I came across her books, but once I got started on one, I was hooked and have read almost all her books thus far. And I read them more than once too. 

So thankful for her books. They have kept me sane and offered me hours of wonderful entertainment during my very worst times when I was down and out.

This is going to be my read for today. I don’t know how many times I’ve read this. It’s still one of my favourites.
