Agatha Christie novels- The Best among the best

Time for another Agatha Chrsite poll!

Ok, this time the question was really tough. I posted a poll in a community to choose the best Agatha Christie novel among the following:

1. And then there were none
2. Murder on the Orient Express
3. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
4. ABC Murders

As you may notice all the four novels are considered to be masterpieces. Anyway 207 Agatha Christie fans took part in the poll and this is the result:

1. And Then There Were None -85 votes
2. Murder on the Orient Express -48 votes
3. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - 51 votes
4. ABC Murders -23 votes

Verdict: And then there were none seems to be everyone's all time favourite! (It is my favourite as well)

Comments about the poll:Well, I was told off for not including these books- A Pocket full of Rye, Murder is Announced and Lord Edgware Dies (this is a superb book). Some commented that the poll was indeed a difficult one:-D These four are all recommended by Agatha Christie fans so you can start reading with any of these.

Tonight was a big night what with the list of things happening to the moon. Blue moon, blood moon, super moon. Also it was the big night when people looked up from their smartphone to the skies just for a moment and took selfies with the 'superstar' of the night.

I was curious to know more about the event. So I opened the newspaper, which was an event in itself, and read about it. It seems the last time that these three events took place together was in 1866 March 31st.
And by the time it happens again, we will be in the netherworlds. The other facts I noted were these:

Blood moon- The moon takes on an orange tint due to earth's shadow during lunar eclipse.
Blue moon- The second full moon day in a month.
Super moon- The moon is closest to the earth.

At 6.30 we were gazing upwards with not a very clear idea of what was going to happen. But the moon did not appear. It seemed the moon was taking a long time to show its face. I thought lazily that there might be a hartal the …

Addicted to Blog Catalog!

It was yesterday that I got my blog approved by Blog Catalog. Soon I was browsing through the enormous number of blogs enlisted. I never thought there were so many bloggers in the world! Yes, I know, my mistake. I have to tell you that I was really impressed! So much creativity and thoughts! So much for thinking that my blog was pretty Okay!
