AMMP September Word Hunt

A Million More Pages discussion on goodreads

Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE (n√©e Miller; 15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976) was an English crime novelist, short story writer and playwright. She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott including Giant's Bread, but she is best known for the 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections that she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigative work of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Jane Marple, Parker Pyne, Ariadne Oliver, Harley Quin/Mr Satterthwaite and Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. She wrote the world's longest-running play, a murder mystery, The Mousetrap. In 1971 she was made a Dame for her contribution to literature. 

She was also a surfer. Who knew?

In honor of Agatha Christie's birthday, we have put together a word hunt to celebrate her life and writing. There is also a mini challenge to read some of her books. And of course, lots of badges!
You may use a book up to 5 times. Plurals are fine. Some words have options listed, you only need to find one of the options. Books used for the mini-challenge can still be used 5 times for the word hunt.
