About Us


The How-to & Advice Site for Women

Bookshelf Boyfriend is a companion to modern living. A practical how-to and advice site for women, with an onus on providing information that’s traditionally considered ‘male’ in a female-friendly form. Our aim is to share skills and knowledge in a smart, jargon-free way.

Switched-on, smart, reliable, useful, aesthetically pleasing, interesting, current, witty, entertaining.

In short, Bookshelf Boyfriend is ‘the perfect boyfriend’ – one that can answer a query in a quick, straightforward, jargon-free manner, as well as being culturally enriching, funny, and good to look at. There will be no patronising comments, no bluffing of answers, no rising of blood pressure and no heated arguments. The site happily answers questions on mundane and everyday stuff as well as the technically specific, but is always smart, snappy and aesthetically pleasing.

Our aim is for BookshelfBoyfriend.com to become the invaluable guide that no independent woman can do without, giving her the absolute grassroots basis of an issue or task and developing it in a coherent way so that she has the potential to take it to a detailed level. We have tons of guides on practical things like improving your home and looking after your car, how to be savvy with law and finance, and recipes for great food and drinks. We also have lots of articles that share insider info on travel, music, art, sports, careers, and a wealth of other stuff.

Our writers and contributors

Bookshelf Boyfriend would be nothing if it wasn’t for our ever-growing band of wonderful, knowledgable, expert and interesting writers and contributors. Find out who they are here.

If like them you know how to do something, anything, get in touch and share it!
