Today is the 128th birthday of Agatha Christie. At one time, I had this grand idea that I was going to read every one of her books in order of publication. That is a lot of reading.

I love all the Agatha Christie movies, Miss Marple and even the Tommy and Tuppence ones, but especially Hercule Poirot (David Suchet portrayal). The books are quick and clever and keep you guessing. The world is a better place that she was in it and still feels the loss that she has left.
