KDD: Agatha Christie

KDD: Agatha Christie

One of today’s Kindle Daily Deal‘s (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) is any of five Agatha Christie books for $1.99 each.

The books are:

  • Death on the Nile (I would consider this one of the best known books…it’s a Hercule Poirot, and was adapted with Peter Ustinov): 4.5 out of 5 stars, 133 customer reviews
  • The Body in the Library (Miss Marple): 4.3 stars, 181 reviews
  • Cards on the Table (another Poirot): 4.4 stars, 80 reviews
  • The Man in the Brown Suit: 4.3 stars, 82 reviews
  • 4:50 from Paddington (Miss Marple) 4.4 stars, 188 reviews



Nominate a child to be given a free Kindle at Give a Kid a Kindle. Last weekend to recommend one of the current nominees to get the Kindle!


* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    I’ve gone off Agatha in the past few years — not sure why …

    Enjoyed the Peter Ustinov film immensely. 😀

      Thanks for writing, Edward!

      There is a…cartoonish quality to Christie which is not as much in vogue now. The books, although they can deal with quite dark things, are not inherently dark…and that also feels less popular to me.

      Ustinov was an amazing character…and played a few as well. 😉
