Agatha Christie

I've always been a Sherlock Holmes fan, but I can remember too many of the endings so I can no longer read them. Not until I manage to forget the endings again anyway. In the meantime I've been reading Agatha Christie's books. I've finished 6 or 7 of them now. I figure it'll take a few years to do. At first I was reading them in no particular order, but it became easy for me to forget which I've read after a while, so I started a spreadsheet to keep track. Now I'm switching to chronological order, if only because former stories are sometimes referenced and it'd be nice to have them in order. I also tend to enjoy the older ones a little more (so far).

Anyway I wonder if anybody else is doing this - tracking with a list. I mark down which I've read, and also add some notes and whether I solved the mystery. Good ol' Agatha is sure good at making me feel stupid.

Greg.

Yes, there are several threads that talk about this already. Search the forums for "librarything" and "goodreads" to find them,

See http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/c/agatha-christie/ for a list of all her books in series and date order. Very nice for helping to keep track and to know what to read if you want to go in order.

It's VERY important to read the Hercule Poirot books in the right order, because many of the later books give away the endings to the earlier ones.
