Hi everyone,  here's my 2nd blog.  Well what a sad start to week, with the sad news on a big talent, Robin Williams.
Wow!! how shocked was the world to know that he had taken his life. May he be in peace now our feelings are with he's family at this sad time.

We'll my week so far has been ok, been trying to find planner peace, with not much luck.  I've been in my Midori regular size, my Raydori field note size and also my black Malden.
After much debating, and setting up and decorating and what I want and don't want, I've decided to go with all three.
I know I know... but I think I'm ok now ish, my Midori regular size is my research book, Journal,  and my bullet journal. This is my book I will carry around and be my main planner.
My Raydori will be used as a brain dump notebook, this is on my bedside table.
My Malden is just my planner for everything ie: work, bills, my daughters school.  I think I'm happy with this so far...but it could change. (More than likely).

So let's talk Jack the Ripper books.
I've been asked about what I would recommend and what books I've enjoyed.
So I've taken some pictures of some of the ones I have.

The first book I would totally say is a must have!! is, The complete Jack the Ripper A-Z.
For the reason it's a great reference book, it gives great information that's available. I have two versions of this book due to updates.

These two books are the best books I found to be the most informative, giving you plenty of
insight to the layout of the crimes, the best description of how London was and how people lived in them days.
I found that these books gave me the best understanding of the crimes.  When I first started to be very interested and wanted to find out more, these books where in my opinion the best I found,  and even now I still go back to them as you can tell by the condition they are in.

  1. Yes what sad news it was to hear of Robin Williams but what I found more shocking were the reactions of many who felt he was "selfish" in his actions. Everyone always has an opinion I guess lol ☺️
    Anyways i have a quick question for you?????��
    I purchased the Ripper encyclopedia by Evans & Skinner. The listing and picture called it a "sourcebook" as does yours. But the actual book I got is a "companion" book. Do you know if these are the same books with maybe some updated info? I've been searching the web but can't find a clear answer. Also do you recommend reading the A-Z book first? I'm so intrigued by this subject now I can't get enough lol. Thanks!
