Death Comes At The End


I've finished my Poirot project! 


I've avoided the shorts, because I'm just not a short story fan. I do have an omnibus compilation of all of the Poirot short stories, which I've dipped into a few times. I may try to get that read during Part II or Part III of the Christie project. Part II is the complete Marple, which I will do next year. Part III is the remainder of her oevre, including Tommy & Tuppence, Colonel Race, Inspector Battle, and the remaining stand-alones.

My read dovetailed with Blue's at the end, so we read the final ten or so at around the same time. Over the next few weeks, we are planning to do some joint posts to wrap up the thing - so look for those! Some will be posted on my BL blog, some on hers, which you can find here: Obsidian Blue (and if you don't follow her, you totally should, because she's awesome!)
