Teaser Tuesday: Murder On The Orient Express ~ Agatha Christie

August 1, 2011

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

 

 

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

‘Now, Monsieur, cast your mind back,’ said Poirot encouragingly. ‘It was cold outside. You have returned to the train. You sit down again, you smoke – perhaps a cigarette – perhaps a pipe -‘

Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie p. 134

    I have always wanted to read something by Christie, but have never actually gotten around to it. This sounds excellent. Thanks for sharing!

    This was my first Agatha Christie (just last month). A good experience, and I plan to read more, branching out from Poirot to Miss Marple.

    Never read anything by her, but I have always wanted to.

    I miss Agatha Christie. I haven’t read anything of hers in a long time. I suppose I should fix that!

    Have a great week!

    I haven’t read anything from Agatha Christie. I just do not know where to start, this looks promising.

    I love Agatha Christie! I went through a spree of reading her books several years ago. Trouble is, I can’t remember which ones I’ve read and which ones I haven’t!

    I’d love for you to come visit my blog…
