 The first post in my promised "Kindle tour".

 Since the Kindle lists things alphabetically, Dame Agatha's collection comes up first.  There's currently 18 items in it - but the Agatha Christie collection does not include titles that are listed in my Desert Island collection, or the separate collection of Christie shorts.

 I don't have all of her work on Kindle, although it's mostly represented in my print collection (with a few titles that I didn't like) since Harper Collins put out some lovely trades.  I do keep my eye on Kindle Daily Deals to add to the collection.

 The collection includes: Murder on the Links, Hercule Poirot's Christmas, Five Little Pigs, Towards Zero, Poirot's Early Cases, The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side, 4:50 from Paddington, At Bertram's Hotel, A Murder is Announced, Murder in Mesopotamia, Endless Night, Peril at End House, Lord Edgware Dies, The Murder at the Vicarage, and Sparkling Cyanide.

 There are also a few titles that aren't strictly Christie mysteries.  John Curran's Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks is in here (which I found fascinating from a writer's POV, just seeing some of the different paths she didn't take), as well as Clues to Christie, which is a sort of roundup of Christies work.  It also includes the new Poirot mystery by Sophie Hannah, called The Monogram Murders.  It was a decent read, but I'm glad I got it on a Daily Deal and not in HC.
