Yup all of them are printed in pocket form so they are not that expensive (I paid like 10 bucks per book)
They stand alone it's not a serie or any thing, every book is a different murder to solve.
AC has two mayor characters that solve her mystery: old ms Marple and PI Hercule Poirot.
She published like 60 books with those two in the lead alone! (I don't think they ever worked on a 'case' together tough..)
She published nearly 80 mystery and crime novels over the years, many of them were turned into movies at one point or another.
And I believe the TV show murder she wrote was influenced by AC novels (love that show BTW!)
It's a light read and I do enjoy the books very much.
 thumbsup

 thankyou I do enjoy reading mystery books, I think I'll have a lot of fun with AC.

Aren't you a doll!  I'm just glad you mentioned it because it is a fabulous book and one I need to revisit pronto.

I've just finished Mistress of Rome and Daughters of Rome by Kate Quinn and I can't wait for the next book in the series Empress of Rome to be released in April. I literally couldn't put these books down, that good!

I'm currently reading The Last Concubine by Lesley Downer.

I've just finished reading a book by Edith Hahn Beer. She managed to live under a friends identity in Germany during the second world war.

There is something about this story that I don't understand. Especially I don't understand why she stayed in Germany due to a man that didn't want to marry her. And why did she leave little Gretl behind.

Empress of the Seven Hills by Kate Quinn

I preferred the other two earlier books that she wrote about ancient Rome however I will still buy the fourth book if it is ever released.

Oh, brother, I couldn't live without my Kindle/iPad and luvvv Amazon.

I just finished Rena's Promise about two sisters who survived 3 1/2 years in Auschwitz.  Great book, but I could sure use a little more light reading right now and I'm up at all hours, so....Any suggestions?  I love murder mysteries and beach reads.

AVP - SO glad you're enjoying War and Peace!  If you ever see the movie after wading through the book, you'll wanna throw something at the t.v.  I know that movies are never like the book, but in this case, it's just blasphemous.

I am reading the Hunger Games, the book version is much better than the movie one.

^^I've been toying with starting The Hunger Games.  Is it really that good?

I need some light reading and I don't think that qualifies, but could be wrong.

If you like dystopian stories then I would recommend it, although I am not finished it yet, I saw the movie, which was a really huge disappointment as I mentioned before, but the book is a good read for me, a light read I suppose easter-egg-basket
