Book End Strap
Category: Reading books, home organization, office
Problem: When I have gone to put books on my bookshelf, it turns out that I need lots of different book ends unless the books fit exactly in the width of the shelf and the book ends need to have enough weight on them to hold them in place. I thought there might be a way of eliminating the bookends by using the books themselves.
Action: I created a transparent strip that can go around several books, tied in the back, that holds the books together, forming an instant bookend.
Result: It worked great!
