The Guinness Book of World Records calls Christie the best-selling novelist of all time. She wrote 66 detective novels under her own name. No two murders were alike. That's impressive. There is even a rumor that she tried to frame her first husband for murder when she found out that he was leaving her for a mistress. She disappeared for ten days and it made world news. She had spunk.
In honor of Agatha Christie's death, (which I feel is more important to commemorate than her birth) I hope the next book you read will be a Christie novel. Pick any one. I don't think you can go wrong.
