The Queen of Crime Writing – Agatha Christie Turns 126


Today is Agatha Christie’s 126th birthday! In honor of this special day, we’re highlight 10 of our favorite Agatha Christie book covers.

Christie’s works include 80 detective novels, in addition to many short stories, romances, and stage plays. Christie’s works have been translated into many different languages and spawned hugely successful movies, including Murder on the Orient Express. She ultimately became one of the first authors to be published in paperback by Penguin Books.

It has been suggested that close to two billion copies of Christie’s books have been sold worldwide. It should come as no surprise then that AbeBooks has an incredible selection of Agatha’s work.
