It’s been a long time since I have posted anything related to Agatha Christie and you lovely readers will be wondering about my ‘Agatha Christie Reading Challenge’. Well! The challenge is on and I have been reading Christie’s books on a regular basis. This is just that I am not finding time to write and publish the reviews of the same. However, here I am with my review of a new Christie book -‘A Pocket Full of Rye’.

‘A Pocket Full of Rye’ by Agatha Christie is one of those books where both the title and a sustainable part of the book refer to a nursery rhyme.
