If you travel along the A4130 in the UK you may be surprised to see road signs pointing you towards magical, fictional places.
Charlotte Westgate, a local resident, said she saw a man in his 20s adding “Gotham City” to a sign on Friday: “He was on his own, and didn’t seem worried that anyone might be looking at him, but no one driving past did anything to stop him.”
Although technically considered ‘vandalism’ and ‘a distraction to drivers’, book lovers everywhere are amused by the signs pointing them towards Narnia or the Emerald City.
A statement said: “We will investigate as soon as the weather improves. While on the surface amusing, it is vandalism and a potential distraction for drivers.”
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!

“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
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.
