Hold on Tight bookshelf by ColleenAndEric.com - Even in the digital age, we all still have personal libraries of books we just can't let go of. Use the Hold on Tight bookshelf to keep your most treasured books upright, on display, and close at hand. A brightly-coloured aluminum cube and oversized wing nut serve as a sliding bookend which can be adjusted and secured wherever it is needed, whether your book collection is growing or shrinking. Offered in Beech, Walnut and Oak. (41"L x 11"H x 8"D).
Hanging Shelf: This is a cool idea (especially for in front of a window). Get the hardware store to drill four holes (2 on each end) and then pull four strands of knotted rope through each hole. Gather at the top (knot again) and hang from hooks. (Maria of Folksy Home has a tutorial for a hanging shelf like this on her blog here.) Image via lolalina.com via vtwonen..
