good to know you're quite enjoying those :) but i prefer reading these than the topics in Literature (subject) -- like the gods and goddesses, and the like. it bores me. (the Gods and Goddesses is the first story i've ever read, i'm not fond of reading books actually. i just bumped into Doyle's masterpieces)

Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd will change your outlook on mystery literature.

All of the Holmes canon multiple times, but not quite all of Christie's. I hate Tommy and Tuppence and never plan to finish that portion of her (fairly vast) catalogue. :P I've read multiple Poirot (nearly all) and Marple releases, but Miss Marple is hard to stay with for a full novel (as brilliant as The Murder at the Vicarage is). I may eventually finish them, but I would rather focus on some other individual thrillers and the like that I've put off for quite a while now.

That said, I do suggest a number of Christie's writings--particularly And Then There Were None, the two Poirot novels mentioned above, The A.B.C. Murders (likely spoiled by now, though), The Murder at the Vicarage, along with the short story collection Poirot's Early Cases. Just a few, but all are worthwhile reads and all of which I have read more than once. :-*
