I love the way that this bookend looks, so I gave it 3 stars just for that. But it can only really hold one book. If you try and add more books, it just falls over. It needs rubber grippers on the bottom or something, which I'm sure I could find at the hardware store and add on the bottom myself. It just seems like a pretty big design flaw to create a book end that can only hold one book.

This is a fun product that I use in my classroom to draw student attention to my Top Picks of the Week. My students are constantly amazed by it and can't get over the design. It's dramatic and eye-catching; other teachers have expressed surprise and delight when they see it and commend it for making something as mundane as a classroom library "catchy" without being flashy and gaudy.

I'm glad I read the cautions: this functions perfectly well as a book end, just as long as there is not too much weight on the actual "vertical(?)" edge. Standard books work great; large books such as a Shakespeare conpendium or a thick anthology will bend this, ruining the effect, and possibly break it entirely.

Overall, I enjoy this product for its dramatic flair and the reaction it creates; as for function it is just that: functionable.

It will actually hold up a row of books, but make sure the ones it's actually propping up are light. Buy for visual interest -- not heavy duty bookending.

This is a very cute book end, but not very practical. You can add rubber gaskets to the bottom to increase holding capacity -- the Non-Slip Rubber Pad Will Hold Almost Anything In Place are a very good choice, for example.

There is only one book end in a box, but you won't want to have two -- the books will flop over on each side breaking somewhere in the middle of the group -- not a very pretty effect in my judgment.

So for a few books on a counter or desk top primarily for humor one of these can be great fun. And, be imaginative in the books you place in the pack; my choices include:

Falling For Him

Cautionary Tales for Children by Hilaire Belloc

To Engineer Is Human: The Role of Failure in Successful Design

Great fun -- but decorative only -- not serious bookends -- these are much better for functionality: Innovera Universal Economy Bookends, Nonskid, 4 3/4 x 5 1/4 x 5 Inches, Heavy Gauge Steel, Black (54055). Inexpensive too.

It is a really cool looking peice. Shame it is so small. It wont hold books with any weight to them. If all you are going to use it for are small paper backs it should do fine.

The Fred & Friends THE END Dramatic Bookend won't do at all if you're looking to, say, hold up your entire volume set of Encyclopædia Britannica or maybe your hardcover collection of Robert Jordan's endless Wheel of Time saga. It's a stand-alone bookend, so you only ever get one per order. And, no, you mustn't be too liberal in propping up heavy books against it. It's a bookend that works best as an ornamental piece. Its practical functionality isn't as satisfying. But it's a can't-miss conversational ice breaker because there'll always be someone in the crowd what's gone agog over the nifty illusion of the tilted books threatening to collapse and crush the poor silhouetted figure. The secret, of course, is the hidden metal edge that braces the first book. The end result is pleasingly dramatic.

This thing does slide a bit and is best used with a few small books. I purchased very standard bookends to keep the larger books nearby in place, then used this at the end of the line for a more decorative look.

I bought this book end expecting it to be more of a 'show piece' than practical. I was pleasantly surprised! Although only one small book end is included, the rubber feet on the bottom of the bookend are discrete enough and firm enough to hold a moderate number of book's weight. I found the bookend held and distributed weight better when the cover of the book was slipped over the slanted face of the item. Also really well finished and good clean lines. A nice product with a fun and quirky style :) more of a decorating piece than for a substantial number of heavy duty books...but still a good purchase.
