And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Homage to the Ripper

A few days ago my husband and I watched a 2009 British mini-series called WHITECHAPEL, about a Jack the Ripper copycat. I highly recommend it:

Whitechapel: The Ripper Returns  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had just recently read a book that also harked back to the Ripper:

 

Now You See Me  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Despite the fact that many more serial killers since the Ripper have murdered more people, for some reason the Whitechapel murders continue to intrigue us. I can think of several other Ripper-related books and movies - if you can come up with others, please add them here! Click "Add Product" to add the link.
