BAFFLING BINGO MYSTERY DAY: AGATHA CHRISTIE AUTOBIOGRAPHY PLUS A BONUS GIFT PACK GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S
"BAFFLING BINGO DAY"

I'M EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THIS THURSDAY'S
MYSTERY BOOK CHOICE IS.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED 
AGATHA CHRISTIE
AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Agatha Christie died on 12 January 1976, having become the best-selling novelist in history. Her autobiography, published in 1977 a year after her death, tells of her fascinating private life, from early childhood through two marriages and two World Wars, and her experiences both as a writer and on archaeological expeditions with her second husband, Max Mallowan. Not only does the book reveal the true genius of her legendary success, but the story is vividly told and as captivating as one of her novels.

PRAISE FOR AGATHA CHRISTIE: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
‘Wonderfully easy to read and engrossing.’
--The Times
‘The best thing she has ever written.'
-- Woman’s Own
‘Agatha Christie’s most absorbing mystery – the story of her own unusual life. She has put it all on record: her early romances; a broken (and a happy) marriage; strange events on the path to roaring success.’
--Daily Mail
‘A wonderful book – written with a delight in the gradual unfolding of 75 years through the eyes of an exceptional old lady and writer.’
--Financial Times 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born on 15 September 1890 in Torquay, England.  Her father, Frederick, was an outgoing American with an independent income.  Her mother, Clara, was rather shy; Agatha resembled her greatly in personality.  There were two other children - Madge and Monty, both older than Agatha.

Although Madge received a formal education, Clara decided Agatha should not.  She intended that Agatha be taught to read when she was eight; however, by the age of five Agatha had already taught herself to read.

The rest of her education was through a mixture of tutors, part-time schooling and French finishing schools. She also trained as a singer and pianist and had it not been for her extreme shyness, she had the talent to have made this her career.
...To finish reading this fascinating biography from AGATHA CHRISTIE's OFFICIAL WEBSITE, go HERE.
                                     
BONUS PRIZE:
THE MURDER AT THE VICARAGE by AGATHA CHRISTIE
Agatha Christie’s first ever Miss Marple mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

’Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a service!’

It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

PLUS, THE WINNER OF THE TWO BOOKS WILL ALSO RECEIVE A FUN AGATHA CHRISTIE MOUSE PAD!

Even though I have read over 25 of Christie's books I never knew about her personal life. I read these books in the 60s & 70s so all is new to me.

I had no idea that she was so shy! I really don't know anything about her. I have read so many of her books so now I am very curious about her life.

Carol N Wong said...

She visited Bagdad and her group got stuck in the sand. (LOL) I had the experience in California so I know what that is like! They were rescued by the Desert Camel Corps. This really makes me want to read this book.

Agatha Christie's mysteries are so well written that I would like to read her autobiography to learn more about this amazing author. It seems that she was married and divorced which was unusual in her time and it looks like she did a lot of traveling---this should make for an interesting life story.
