I have never read Agatha Christie. May I be forgiven! 

Is there any order they should be read in and should I go for Miss Marple or Poirot first?

What about trying The Secret Adversary ? It`s the first Tommy & Tuppence book. :)

I've got all the David Suchet as Poirot DVDs ; I'd pick those over the books anyway. :)

Hurray ! I`ve got the latest (paperback) Donna Andrews, but I`m saving it for a day when I need cheering up ( along with the latest Rita Mae Brown`s Sneaky Pie Brown and Joanne Fluke`s Hannah Swensen ). :)

 

Which Donna Andrews is it ? :D

Oh, and Donna Andrews - she has a series( ` Meg Langslow`)  set in Virginia which is very funny and has great characters. 

 

Recently finished Murder With Peacocks, just started Murder With Puffins by Donna Andrews. Very funny with lots of eccentric characters, great read when you're not in the mood for anything heavy. Thanks again for the recommendation Li'l Pixie :hug:

Aww, you`re welcome. :D

 

I noticed you were reading them, but didn`t want to be pushy and ask how you were liking them ( I think I`ve pushed enough people into trying them ! :lol:

 

I`m up to book 20 myself ; it`s in my TBR,waiting till I need a reading kickstart, or for a treat at Xmas. :)
