A fun looking, practical product
Like these. They don't have long bases or weight very much so books near the bookend need to be sturdy or otherwise they push over.

Brilliant, Useful Design Makes Grouping Easier
My kids have soooo many books, and not much room to organize them. Other bookends I purchased could not hold their own against the weight of the heavier books on the shelves, while these have been PERFECT in 3 ways: (1) the weight of each book"end" allows them to support heavier books, even on the outside! #2# 5 pieces mean you can use them in different ways, and on multiple shelves, and #3# the divider tabs allowed me to group together different types of books together, like the storybooks, the workbooks, the activity, drawing & coloring books, and reference materials. If I had more space on the shelf, and if they had textbooks, those would have been up there, also. The ONLY drawback comes while using these bookends on an open bookshelf, you need to finagle the bookends into place so you can see the tabs if you're OCD like me. Otherwise, the support of a closed shelf #2 uprights on both ends# assists with keeping the books from falling out of place while you work the bookends into lining up. THIS was the item I could not find in the office supply stores!
