I love all of the Agatha Christie mysteries and probably do have them all! Although I do gravitate to good, clean mysteries, I will read most anything (e.g., The Shack, Joshua, Rediscovering Catholicism and each night the best...The Holy Bible)as I do love to read.
Have written down Amelia Peabody for future reference...thank you, Lisa!

blessings and hugs,

...off to find your other post that popped up today!

well as I finished the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, I am now struggling my way through the Silmarillion.....and I'm going to have to start taking notes on who's who and what all their aliases are and what they did cuz it's driving me nuts!

Tommy and Tuppence are cute, but they never appealed to me as much as Miss Marple or Poirot. That said, remember that I have about 90 Christie titles and have read them all at least twice. ;-)

ANY book . . . and if it has a dusty cover then all the better.

I just finished reading Drowning Ruth . . . good, but sad.
