Due to my quantity of books, shelf space is precious. I managed to get about 20 "library-style" bookends (plain, flat, bent metal) from a Japanese dollar-store, and I've been using those for quite some time. They tend not to tip and slide, which is a common failing of other bookends I've had.

My only interesting bookends are the Argonath bookends that came with my DVD of The Fellowship of the Ring. Sadly, one of the kings lost his outstretched hand during a tipping-because-they're-too-light-for-actual-books disaster.

Thanks for the heads-up on the tipping. I'll have to check mine to see that they're well protected. I do have one or 2 pairs of the library style book ends, but they're not my favorite. I've let it be known that interesting bookends will make lovely birthday and Xmas presents.

I too have some library-style bookends however I do
find they work rather well. Except with the smaller ones of course you can't have too many books overwhelming the smaller sized ones. And the larger
sized library-style bookends work great. You have
to be careful with the plastic ones though they have
a tendency to snap off at the bottom sometimes if you're not careful.
