BJ Rose Dina, I'm enjoying your "Reference Notes" about the A. Christie books!

Dina BJ, I read AC's entire backlist in Portuguese when I was a teen and I've always wanted to reread them in English. The time has come and as I started rereading them, I was surprised at how little I remembered about the stories, so I decided to write these "Reference Notes". I actually write them in a little notebook as I'm reading the books, trying to solve the murder along with Poirot. Unfortunatelly, my little grey cells aren't as superb as his. :)


Veronica Alvarez I have never read it hope its good
