A quick book stand for some of my daughter’s college textbooks. The books are large paperbacks which seem to defy standard bookends. I threw it together from a couple pieces of melamine covered particle board and some scraps of lauan plywood. The slots are just slightly wider than the books are thick to stop the flop and droop.

A nice looking solution to a common problem. Thanks for sharing.

I like this better than just piling them up in a heap. Which is what happens at my house.
