      The best way I know to pay tribute to this great writer is to share her books with friends and to make new friends by introducing them to her.

      Sophie Hannah has got the go ahead to revive Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot. I am waiting with bated breath to see if she makes as good a job as Agatha. She will set the book in 1920's - Hastings and Japp won't be in it.... and Sebastion Falks is going to write a Evelyn Waugh's Jeeves and Wooster book... we will be waiting .... such good writers all!

      I'm a late bloomer for Agatha Christie and have read almost all of her works. I'm currently working on adding all her books into my personal collection. It would mean a lot to me if I could win this!

      I read my 1st Agatha Christie book 50 yrs ago at 12 and within 8 years I had all her books and bookshelved in alphabetical order. Some are lost now. I was/am in awe of her skill. This is heresy.. but ...I always felt a clue was left out and used to backtrack throught the story to find where this happened. Sometimes......!!
