These bookends are used by the Friends of the Barnegat NJ Library for its book sale. They are sturdy, and inexpensive. Couldn't ask for anything more! We're a non for profit fund raising organization, so we're always looking for the best product for the best price. That way more of our money gets to the Barnegat Library!

Extremely inexpensive, but--

Hard to argue with the price. Just wish the bookends were a bit bigger and slip-resistant.

              These economy size bookends are perfect for DVD shelf support. I will use them for the CDs too. They aren't large enough to support many books though. Price is good.

This particular size will fit on shorter bookcase shelves or if books are stacked, you can use 2 above each other for tall stacks. Best price on the net & super fast delivery

                        I use these bookends to organize shelves of smaller to midsize books, nothing large or heavy. In this context, they are very serviceable. Although not decorative or fancy, these bookends are relatively inexpensive and do the job adequately.

                              We needed a great deal to upgrade a small church library. I searched the web and these were the best price of any other. They are working well and I have no complaints.

                                        As far as bookends go, these are the best. Unfortunately for me, I had been buying from another site before I found Discount Office Items,
                                        Now I will do ALL my shopping on Discount Office Items.

                                              These bookends are used by the Friends of the Barnegat NJ Library for its book sale. They are sturdy, and inexpensive. Couldn't ask for anything more! We're a non for profit fund raising organization, so we're always looking for the best product for the best price. That way more of our money gets to the Barnegat Library!

                                                    I can't believe these bookends are priced so reasonably and yet are of such good quality. I wanted them for holding long rows of CDs on place on shelves and they work perfectly.
