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.

Wuthering Heights is based on the classic novel of the same, although Bush was actually inspired to write the song after watching a 1967 BBC mini-series adaptation of Emily Brontë. She was instantly hooked and straight away read the book, discovering that she shared her birthday (30th of July) with that particular Brontë. Serendipity!
This year, Kate Bush, along with other artists, has been commissioned to create another tribute to the Wuthering Heights author by providing words for a permanent art installation on the ‘wiley, windy moors‘ that inspired the famous tale.
Ok so maybe she didn’t use magic- she is a muggle after all- instead she used a projector and a steady hand… and she has some tips for anyone who may want to try something similar.
Anyone who has read or seen the tragedy would know that the plight of the poor youngsters may have been prevented if a letter had arrived on time. Their deaths were at the hands of a late delivery! Perhaps Royal Mail had neglected to remember that fact when they chose this play over LITERALLY ANY OTHER.
Twitter became awash with snarky comments from ‘um actually’ types who couldn’t wait to let Royal Mail know their mistake.
