What Agatha Christie book are you reading right now?

This was a really popular topic in the last forum so we thought we'd bring it back.

What AC book are you reading right now and how far are you? I'm rereading The Moving Finger. It's my favourite. I think I like it so much because I find the relationship between Jerry and his sister so believable. I've got to the bit where Joanna goes for a walk on the moors wearing the wrong kind of shoes. I love that bit!

    I have read Agatha Christie mysteries my entire life but in a very un-Poirot, disorganized fashion. So three years ago, I decided on a plan worthy of Dame Agatha: I started re-reading all of her works in chronological order. The end of my quest is in sight, and I'm reading Tommy and Tuppence's last adventure "Postern of Fate" now. I call it my Agatha Christie Chrono-Quest. It has been great fun, and I have enjoyed sharing her career as it historically unfolded!

    I've read all the Christie books and I'm going to reread them by "Detective" - starting with Superintendent Battle.

    The Secret of Chimneys 1925    The Seven Dials Mystery 1929      Cards on the Table 1936 (with Poirot)      Murder is Easy 1939 (or Easy to Kill)    Towards Zero 1944          The last 3 are among her best.

    Evita, I have taken on the same task as you;  I am reading Agatha's books in order!  It has taken me 4 years and I am maybe just passed the half way point.  Granted, I have read other mysteries as well as other books along the way.  I have also read all of Christie's short stories along the way.  Right now I am on 'They Came to Baghdad.'

    I'm rereading The Thirteen Problems - I really like those short stories, it's an excellent book and Miss Marple as modest and brilliant as ever.

    And Then There Were None. At the beginning of September http://www.audible.co.uk/ had a special offer of Christie Dramatisation plays and I purchased ATTWN. Then at the Agatha Christie Festival Literary Panel with Kate Mosse and Simon Brett on the Friday night, everyone was given a copy of the book. So this is what I am reading.
