Poirot Book Challenge

Last year I did my first book challenge. I joined the A~Z Reading Challenge and tried to read 52 books , 26 A~Z authors and 26 A~Z titles. It was fun, but I got tired of not being able to read the books that I was in the mood for because they didn't fit. So I didn't finish it. Yeah, that's right...I'm a quitter. I'll most likely get around to reading the rest of the books on the list at some point and when I do I'll update the list, but I'm moving on.
I am going to start a new challenge. I want to read all the Hercule Poirot books by Agatha Christie. My list has 42 stories, which is not quite 52, but still a lot, so I'm not going to give myself a time limit. When I'm done, I'm done.
I love Agatha Christie's mysteries. I've read quite a few and the only ones I guessed correctly were the ones I'd seen the movie version of first. (I guess that doesn't really count). So here we go.
