Books from the Backlog - Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks by John Curran

Blurb:  Agatha Christie died in 1976 at 85, the world's most popular author. After the death of her only child, 73 handwritten notebooks came to light, from single jots to lists, to full outlines of memorable plots and characters, plus grocery and schedule memos from a bountiful creative mind - a complex web of connections to unravel and link. Actual notebook page reproductions. 2 unpublished Hercule Poirot short stories: "The Capture of Cerebrus", and "The Incident of the Dog's Ball"

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I was so excited when this came out I bought it brand new in hardcover.  Not sure how many years ago that was but it was more then a couple.  I've really enjoyed the Agatha Christie Miss Marple reread that I did this year so I need to pick this one up.


  1. Should be fascinating for someone like yourself who has read so much of her books.

  2. This sounds like it would be very interesting. I hope that you enjoy it!

  3. This sounds like your dream book, Katherine. I am surprised you haven't read it. 😯
