The Simply Christie Chronicles

This page is dedicated to my reading project of reading all the works of Agatha Christie. There is no time limit on this project. My goal is to work through all of Agatha Christie’s works, both novels and short stories, in order of publication date. I have listed all the titles below with their publication dates (based on what I found in my research on the internet). My plan is to blog about each one; so I will link all blog posts here. If for some reason I don’t blog about a particular work, I will still note here when I finished the work.

Also, I hope to keep a Currently Reading/Up Next section in my sidebar to indicate which work I’m currently reading, as well as which work is up next. Simply look for the blog button in my sidebar to find that section easily.

If you would like to join me in this reading project, that would be wonderful! You can read one work, read five, read them all….whatever you fancy. Feel free to grab my blog button for your blog sidebar or to put in any blog posts you write for any of Christie’s works you read with me for this reading project. Please do link the blog button to this page. Thank you so very much! 🙂

A note about the book list below. In my research, I learned that some books had different UK and US titles. And some works were published only in the UK or the US. All this has been noted next to the title.
