I love Agatha Christie. She led a hugely varied and interesting life, not all of it happy. Her stories, I think, are brilliant still today – she had such a wonderful imagination and ability to entertain through words. She has sold a staggering 2 billion books to date – 2 billion!!! Her work has only been outsold by the Bible and Shakespeare. What an incredible achievement.
I have a small collection of her books in various tatty, pre-owned, paperback volumes however her publisher, Harper Collins, brought out a reprinted series of her work in hardback not so long ago – the Facsimile edition. Amazon are always sending me tempting emails when they release another of her titles and I just can’t help myself!
“The Seven Dials Mystery” has just arrived. Aren’t they just so fabulous?
