  1. I'm going to do this! Will try to read them in order--though I have to tell you, I am limiting my challenge to only Agatha Christie's work. I will most definitely not be reading the Sophie Hannah books. I got sucked into the Lord Peter Wimsey continuation books by Jill Paton Walsh (they were a sad disappointment for someone who adores Wimsey and had high hopes for more stories about him) and I really don't want to read Hannah's version of Poirot.
