Agatha Christie Novels Checklist

We’re having a used book sale this week at my school. In the spirit of being thrifty and stretching a dollar, I thought I would take advantage of this opportunity and work toward completing my Agatha Christie collection. (There are some other books I’m looking for too.)

And what did I find? A boat-load of Agatha Christie novels! But there was a catch; I did not know which books I had and which ones I didn’t have. To further complicate the matter, Agatha Christie’s books have been published on and off for decades in multiple collections and many under multiple titles too! No two collections are alike.

So I spent some time searching for a complete list of her novels (she wrote other kinds of works) and found the best list on Wikipedia. It wasn’t in a format I could use so I compiled the information into the following list. I provide it here so that other fans can complete their collections as well.

I believe this list is complete, but there are some minor details that are missing such as complete lists of which detectives are included in each short story collections. I welcome any comments and updates.

  1. Hi Daniel. Just wanted to say thank you for the Agatha Christie list.

    I was inspired to try to find a list on the web when I saw in today’s news that new recordings had been found of Agatha Christie describing her writings:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/15/books/15agatha.html?ex=1379217600&en=8cfeb78f14239c3d&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink

    Thank you for taking the time to put together the list!

    I’ve been a big Christie fan since I was twelve. I’m pretty sure I read most of her books by the time I was 16 (I bought at least 6 or 7 while in England on vacation at the age of 13. I haven’t actually read one in years, but with this latest news and your helpful doings it will be interesting to see what I’ve missed and start picking them up again!

    I’ve found reading Martha Grimes an enjoyable read now, but nothing beats a droll Agatha Christie!

    Cheers.
