Podcast Notes – Episode 247

Hello bookish friends! Hope everyone is having a great week. This week we learned all about what a sod poodle is. Is Keathe the only person who had no idea that another word for a prairie dog is sod poodle?!? Anyway, here is the mascot that we were talking about:

We were talking about all the different places that we bring books to. Martha went to her only major league baseball game and brought a book. Keathe brings a book to her kids band concerts. Where is the weirdest place you’ve taken a book? Let us know in the comments!

Vonnie found the world’s greatest odor beads. They even worked on the smell of a decomposing corpse in someone’s crawlspace?!?!? If you’ve been involved in some questionable activities and need to get rid of the smell, check these out:

We are still making up our laminated cards with our five guys that are our ‘freebies’ (have you seen that Friends episode?) Who would be on your card? We’ve been talking about it on our facebook group: The 3 Book Girls Tribe. Have you joined it yet? Join us here:

Podcast Notes – Epsiode 246

Hello bookish friends! This week we were all about the great change of life. Join us in sharing menopause and peri-menopause woes! We talk about it all – the hot flashes, the side eye you get when trying to get your estrogen refilled, and our plans to go to Mexico for it. For those wishing to hear it, here is the menopause version of Bohemian Rhapsody:

We also talked about the perils of shopping for clothing online. Man did we have a lot to vent about! Keathe did find an elusive body scanner once upon a time that could find you the perfect pair of jeans. You can see the weird machine here:

Somebody in Pennsylvania won $500 million in the lottery. It wasn’t Keathe, but she doesnt want to win millions anyway (her ultimate dream would to be win just enough to pay off the mortgage). The other girls want all the money the lottery will give them. Where are you ladies in the debate? How much would be your ultimate dream to win? Let us know in the comments!

We talked books too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Vonnie’s book

Keathe’s book

Rachael’s book

Martha’s book

Hope you guys have an amazing week, bookish friends!

Podcast Notes – Epsiode 245 (the one with Michael James)

Hello again, bookish friends! We had a lot of fun talking to author, Michael James this week. He is the author of the amazingly funny and strange book, The Hotel at the End of Time (think a really snarky Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy). If you want to check him out (and you totally should), you can find him here:

Michael James’ website

and

Michael James’ Facebook page

We had a lot of really deep conversations about Monster Truck announcing, and how to most effectively kill guys named Wyatt (the bad guy minions in his latest book). Vonnie gave us some of her best tips about using whipped cream, and we discussed our issues with segues.

Here are the books we reviewed this week:

Vonnie’s book

Keathe’s book

Michael’s book

Martha’s book

Martha and Keathe fan girled just a bit over Michael and his newest book. We’re crossing our fingers that he’ll come back and join us when his next book comes out! We’ll see you next week bookish friends, have a great one!

Episode 244 – Podcast Notes

Hello again book-ish friends! We had to make do without Vonnie this week, because she was attending her son’s college graduation. Go Tyler!! Martha was surrounded by romance and poignant books (her least favorite word ever).

Martha went on location and discovered an awesome cookie delivery business (but didn’t bring us any cookies, and we weren’t at all salty about that). You should check them out because they are awesome:

Tiff’s Treats

We also had some inappropriate discussions about straws… Here is the link for Magen’s key chain straw:

We also were making up our lists of 5 people we would have sex with. Everyone needs to be thinking of who you’d put on your lists. I feel like there will be a facebook post coming up about it…

Funny enough, we also reviewed some books! Here is what they were:

Keathe’s book

Magen’s book

Rachael’s book

Martha’s book

That’s all for this week, bookish friends! Have good one, and we’ll see you next week ๐Ÿ™‚

Podcast Notes for Episode 243

We all found out about the fact that there were 19 crimes that will get you to Australia (Magen was close) which is where the fabulous wine company name comes from. If you want to lose yourself down that rabbit hole, here is the company website (we poked fun at them, but we secretly love them)

19 Crimes Wine

We also talked about the amazing book groups we belong to on facebook, where we get TONS of book recommendations, based on the kind of books we enjoy. You should take a look for one that tickles your fancy!

Here is an example of a public group that Vonnie would love:

Facebook Historical Fiction Book Lovers Group

And here is the group Magen mentioned:

Bookaholic Cafe Facebook Group

Martha discovered an amazing small company a while back, and we keep talking about them on the podcast (because they are just that cool). They’re called Carpe Librum, and you can check them out here:
