Generally book clubs consist of a group of middle aged soccer moms drinking wine and reviewing the latest literary fad, all while holding back nasty comments about eachother. Our podcast is called 3 Book Girls, and it’s the opposite of this, except occasionally the wine. We are “the most inappropriate book club you never knew you were missing!”
We began this journey after a conversation about why people never discuss books anymore and it morphed into the suggestion that we do something about it. So, we started a podcast in 2016. Books are our passion, but we are also twisted, weird, and nerdy. This makes for an explosive combination and sometimes we get distracted from the subject at hand. In the end, we each talk about what books we read during the week. We sprinkle it liberally with our unique perspectives, passion, and humor. Our guests read different genres to give us a fresh outlook.
When you spend an hour with extreme book lovers, you always come away with something good to read. 3 Book Girls is not for everyone, we do not recommend listening with children present. However, if you are up for a bit of off-color fun and some books that will become all-time favorites, come on in! Our goal is world domination, one book at a time. We are 3 Book Girls, available on Soundcloud and iTunes! Also, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
This is a guest blog by Martha from 3 Book Girls.
Some people have decided that bookshelves are so last century and have been attempting some daring and kooky shelving options. Books can now be dangled, strung up, float on invisible shelves, be shoved in some foam padding, or displayed like an arty picture. Anything constitutes a shelf now: pipes, crates, a knife block- the ultimate recycling.
Check out some of the ridiculous idea below and see if you fancy adopting one of these shelving ideas!

The people behind the Roald Dahl Story Company Ltd have decided to take these words and live by them by donating a percentage of the company’s profits to charity.
Roald Dahl had given his time and money to charity all his life, and even helped design an innovative and life-saving valve for children with hydrocephalus. His tireless efforts to improve children’s health and well-being continued after his death when his wife created the charity The Roald Dahl Foundation in 1990.
The charity rebranded as Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity on the 1st of November 2010, and up until 2013, it focussed upon supporting children with brain and blood conditions. Post-2012 the charity decided to focus on all serious illnesses that affect children, as well as a broad aim to improve literacy.
