under $100: bookends (and a few splurges!)

by Grace Bonney

lately i’ve been spending more time with books, as part of an attempt to back myself away from all of the screens i seem to live in front of 24/7. now that i’m picking up more things to read, i’ve found myself looking for better ways to store my “currently reading” books. i always get about a third of the way through something and decide to dive into something else, so my collection of “need to finish reading” is pretty extensive, so i thought perhaps displaying my books on my desk or spare counter space would inspire me to pick them back up (rather than getting lost in our sea of books on the shelf). i’ve got plenty of room on , so i decided to find the perfect set of bookends to keep things tidy- and during my search i came across so many i thought i’d turn them into a roundup. so here are my favorite designs, all under $100. if you’re willing to up the budget a bit, i included a small splurge section after the jump, for beautiful designs that might warrant an extra trip to the atm. enjoy!
