National Reading Month is here and it is the best time to get new books and other book trinkets. Don’t you just love the smell of books? We all fall victim to buying countless books to add to our collections but don’t get the time to read (yet, or maybe never). This is why our shelves are going to need some awesome superhero bookends that will take on the Herculean task of holding these books together!
Of course, we want to skip the tacky, boring bookends we see in libraries. So yes, we want the drama, the elegance, and the wow factor! If you’re thinking what we’re thinking, here are 5 of the most awesome superhero bookends you must have for your book collection:
This Yoda bookend is just the thing that will complete your Starwars collection. It is an L-shaped bookend support that also acts as a great office desk decor. The piece is angled to give the illusion that the Yoda figure is using “The Force” to prevent the books from collapsing.
Made up of resin, this Spiderman with villains bookend is an impressive piece. The detailed sculpture of Venom, Sandman, and Spiderman is just too awesome to not buy. It can also be a great addition to your toy collections as it looks more like an action figure than a superhero bookend.
This invisible supergirl bookend is a great idea if you’re looking for a unique gift for your superhero-loving, book-lover friends. It is not your ordinary superhero bookend, it is a wall-mounted piece that holds your books as if they are floating in the air. The superhero accent at the bottom is attached to the bookend via a magnet making it look like the figure is carrying all the books. The minimalist design is what makes it extra great!
An exciting centerpiece for your side table collection, this polyresin Kingkong piece does more than just hold your books. It can also act as great house decor. The piece is made of polyresin which makes it sturdy and durable for use. This Kingkong bookend is also designed to have nonskid bottoms so that books are always kept in place.
Older pieces are harder to come by making them more expensive, and rarer. Take a look at this Paquet DC Comics bookend which was manufactured in 1996 that sells for $549 on eBay!
Should you buy one?
Taking care of books is one of the best characteristics of being a bonafide bookworm. Since bookends are a must to prolong the life of books on shelves, it wouldn’t hurt to spend a few bucks on collectible bookends. There is nothing more fun than reading and re-reading old books from your collection. It is also extra fun to know that you still have books lying around that you haven’t read yet. So, go ahead and buy that awesome superhero bookend of your dreams!
