hidden bookends





Two ways of using simple metal bookends:
 
#1: In the center of a shelf to hold books in place when a book is taken out. This is so helpful for those with long bookshelves. I often refer to my Housekeeping Handbook and since it’s quite large, the books to the left of it used to fall over when I take it out, not anymore.
 
#2: At the ends obviously but if placed inside the cover you don’t have to see the ends and you can enjoy the seeing the whole front (or back) of your books.

  3. What a fantastic idea! I always hated the look of those metal bookends, but thought they were necessary on open-ended shelves. I will definitely use this idea!I'm also going to check out that book "Nothing to Wear."
