Welcome to my new feature This Old Thing? where I pick an older title (or 2 or 3) to highlight and possibly introduce to new readers.
Yesterday was Agatha Christie's Birthday. She was born on September 15, 1890. The official Christie Website is having a week of celebration if you'd like to check it out.
These books were bought at different library sales. In fact, there are always numerous copies of Agatha Christie books at every sale I've been to. This is not surprising-
From Wikipedia: "Christie has been referred to by the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling writer of books of all time and the best-selling writer of any kind, along with William Shakespeare."
It shouldn't be too hard to find one of these old titles.
- Murder on the Orient Express (featuring Hercule Poirot)
- Murder Is Easy
- The Sittaford Mystery
- They Do It With Mirrors
- The Man in the Brown Suit
And just for fun, since we're talking Hercule Poirot, honor him by wearing this "I Love Mustaches" pin from Button Rouge.
