How do you permanently remove Flipboard, Google Play Movies and Google Books from a rooted Samsung Galaxy S3.

Install Titanium Backup. And 'freeze' the stuff. Technically, those apps are still there. And you are not killing dependencies (good). But they use ZERO resources when 'frozen' and they are not showing up in app drawer etc...
I didn't know Flipboard is baked into the SGS3? Certainly not on the one I had.

Just some further info, I have tried System App Remover and Root Explorer on both the apps get deleted but If the phone is turned off or the battery is swapped the 3 apps reappear. Any help would really help.

Has always worked well for me - killing Samsung's & Google's bloat... Also: it's very good for backing up

Jan's right, Titanium Backup is the best tool for the job. Well, it's the best tool for the job which I've ever come across.
