Agatha Christie's genius for detective fiction is unparalleled. Her worldwide popularity is phenomenal, her characters engaging, her plots spellbinding. No one knows the human heartor the dark passions that can stop itbetter than Agatha Christie. She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime. The Body in the Library The body of a beautiful blonde is found in the library of Gossington Hall. What the young woman was doing in the quiet village of St. Mary Mead is precisely what Jane Marple means to find out. Amid rumors of scandal, Miss Marple baits a clever trap to catch a ruthless killer.

#GratefulReads - Book and Snack: The year almost got away without hanging out with Agatha. Usually one time a year we have a meetup. I think she tried to get with me earlier this year but I was distracted by Louise. Now I‘m ready to devote undivided attention.

Snack = Blood oranges are in season now🧡🍊

veritysalter I fear the day I will have read the full Agatha cannon. I suppose I could start from the beginning again! Good choice - happy reading 📖 xx 3d
OriginalCyn620 Nice! 🧡🍊 3d
Scochrane26 I‘m not sure I‘ll ever read all her books. Of course, I just started a few years ago, but I‘ve still only read a small amount. 3d

I definitely enjoyed this book, but I was a little confused by the ending. I love Miss Marple. I had read the first one last yr but hadn‘t found time to continue until #scarathlon. Not into scary books, so mysteries are how I‘m contributing to #teamslaughter. @Clwojick +2 for theme, +1 for post

Agatha Christie name-drops herself. 😄

Zelma That is pretty funny. Didn‘t Stephen King to that too, or did he just write himself into some of his books? 7mo

This marks my completion of the Miss Marple books (except the short stories). I had to circle back to this—I accidentally checked out an audio dramatization of it last year. I was puzzled when it was so short, then found I‘d checked out the wrong version.😩Going back to it now, I enjoyed the full version—plenty of Miss Marple, good twists & turns, and a likeable cast of characters. And I was still intrigued by the mystery, even knowing whodunnit!

Went to my best friends library book fair and then grabbed lunch so we could show off our spoils! I got two really cool 1880‘s and 1912 German books and a 1947 dictionary to add to my collection. 🙌

1. Once physically. Everyday via computer or kindle.
2. 18 😬
3. Right now 14 books, 11 are audio. 4 movies because we are going camping Sunday.
4. No. All our electronic books get zapped back automatically. Phew.
5. I have 8 on hold. Two just came in overnight. 😬
6. How Long to Black Future Month. I‘ve had it on hold for 6 weeks already. Four or so until I get it. Sigh.

monalyisha Jealous of your camping plans! Do you live somewhere that it‘s temperate right now or are you going cold-weather camping? 9mo

A fun, quick read. But, Marple is not my favorite. She fades into the background and doesn‘t really give a satisfying reveal of her unraveling of the mystery. #MountTBR

Super bummed about the Rams loss yesterday, but happy I got to finish this cozy. I don‘t do a ton of cozies but I really like Miss Marple and her clever, observant ways. An entertaining read - perfect to lift my spirits from this gloomy weather and heartache.

I read this between July 22 & 27. I gave it 3.5 stars (well 3 on GoodReads). I liked it but I don‘t think I care for Miss Marple too much. Or the style that Christie writes her in. Most of the time Miss Marple is absent and there‘s no clue as to how she solved the mystery. It‘s not a bad read but just that aspect is disappointing.

What a delight! I was having a stress attack trying to choose what to read next and picked this on a whim. Perfect palette cleanser that sucked me right in and along. I was surprised at the more lighthearted snarky tone of a Marple novel - this must technically be my first! Not my last 💕
And in the intro Christie explains how she wanted to tweak the common ‘body in the library‘ trope.

1. 4x as a kid (including heading off to college) and 5x as an adult—more than I thought...
2. 150+ miles
3. Hmmm, I have 2000+ books & the vast majority—by which I really mean ALL—of them would have to go with me. No idea how many boxes it would take.🤔
4. We bought our current house as our forever house but my husband talks about condo living after the kids go off to college so we‘ll see.
5. Yay! I‘m not carrying all those books!!! 😂

Getting some #audiopuzzling done tonight. Was planning on finishing Fear In The Sunlight by Nicola Upson but got distracted by puzzles and an old favorite by Dame Agatha. Her books translate well to audio form & the narrators are always top notch, David Suchet narrates the newer Poirot audiobooks. I‘ll finish this puzzle & my tea then switch to the Upson novel. What are you guys doing this morning/day/night?🎧

BarbaraJean Oh, I love Agatha on audio. 💜 I‘m working on the #13inthree readathon today—the plan is to get in some hard-core relaxing. 😁 1y

This is a fun mystery with a nice little twist in the end. While it‘s a “Ms Marple”, there is only very little Ms Marple in it.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Makes sense to me, libraries are for reading not spreading communicable diseases or sleeping off hangovers. 😱😂 2y
rubyslippersreads Apparently you can bring cats. 😸 2y
bookish_wookish unfortunately there are a lot of homeless people who sleep in our library 😞 the main city library is far worse because of a higher homeless population. 2y

KCorter @bookish_wookish Those first two jumped out at me as well. 😞 The library seems to be welcoming due to free computer access. We also have a cafe and multiple bathrooms in a downtown area that is not very sympathetic to the homeless population. Our library even offers some programs specifically to help with resumes and job searches. The library seems to be the safest, most welcoming area in the downtown area. 2y
KCorter @rubyslippersreads If used bookstores have taught me anything, cats and books are a match made in heaven. 2y
bookish_wookish Yes! I remember i went to ask the librarian for help to find a book and it was by a table that a guy was sleeping at and she threw him out. I felt awful! I just wanted to get my book! 2y

Ok, it is a Miss Marple Book. But I'm not a fan.Too much diaologes and Miss Marple have a very dmall role. Her "first" scene is past 100 pages.

But this is only my opinion.
