Cool Bookends

Those of us who haven’t thrown out all our books since the advent of the Kindle, the Nook, and its ilk are fully aware that the possession of numerous sets of bookends – homemade or store-bought (and usually some of each) – are part of the required equipment of the dedicated booklover.

Before the Internet Era, finding unusual bookends was a relatively rare occurence. Nowadays, photos of unusual bookends are posted to the biblioblogosphere with satisfying regularity. For example, Flavorwire recently posted these ten sets of unusual-looking bookends.
