In addition, HarperCollins announced some major Christie news today. eBookNewser has the scoop: “HarperCollins Publishers is taking over the exclusive worldwide English rights to Agatha Christie’s work including digital and audio formats … This is the first time since the 1980s that all of Christie’s books have been with a single publisher in the U.S. and the only time the program has been with one publisher worldwide.” (Via the Guardian)
