... and speaking of Agatha Christie, a new release of Murder on the Orient Express!!

look what just came in my mail!  It's a brand new facsimile edition put out by William Morrow, released today, even down to "The Crime Club notation on the side.  I LOVE this cover!  About this particular edition, the note on Amazon says the following:

"Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family’s archive,Murder on the Orient Express Facsimile Edition also features the first hardcover edition’s actual cover art, which has been painstakingly restored to its original beauty."

Inside is also a lovely reproduction of the original: first, the title page,  

followed by a short blurb and a list of other works by Agatha Christie:

In case you're at all interested, here's the Amazon link (I get nothing if you click through).


  1. How very neat, Nancy: thanks for sharing.

  2. I ordered this book after seeing it here, and it should be coming today. I am looking forward to it.

    1. This is my favorite Christie novel, followed by Roger Ackroyd and The ABC Murders. I'm rather partial to Halloween Party too; I'm planning on reading it shortly.


I don't care what you write, but do be nice about it
