Giveaway! Win a Shakespearean Bookend

Storming K.M. Weiland

Here’s a little something extra to be thankful for this week. Welcome to Giveaway #4 in our month-long windup to the release of my dieselpunk-historical novelΒ Storming. It releases next week on December 4th to the fanfare of the BIG Launch-Day prize, so be sure to stop back for the fun. But for now, you get the chance to win one more little beauty.

Who can possibly settle forΒ boring bookends? Not a writer. (I admit to owning a few of those industrial, metal bookends, but only because I use them for drawer dividers not bookends. *shudder*) I ran across this adorably awesome little number on Etsy.

The Prize

Literary Bookend 3Literary Bookend 2
Literary Bookend 4 Literary Bookend

This one-of-a-kind book is, according to the shop:

Perfect for book lovers and crafted from old paperbacks, these make unique business card holders or a fitting bookend. Two can be set on end and used as a candle pillar for small votives, or as a literary decorative pillar all on their own.

The book pages are taken from Shakespeare’s plays.

  1. I have no bookends! πŸ™‚

  2. This looks so cool!

  3. I posted my last comment without answering the question. \o/ – I would use it for decor in my room, next to my makeshift bookshelf.

  4. Phillip Mellor says:

    My book shelves are heaving, but I have no book ends

  5. Dr. Kenneth R. Cooper says:

    I’m a big Tolkein fan. When my son gave me the director’s edition o the first DVD, “The Lord of the Rings,” it came with a set of book ends that look like the giant statues with outstretched arms in one of the scenes. So, I pulled all dozen or so of my Tolkein books and put them between these book ends. Voila! A Tolkein to divide Tolkeins!

    • Ah!!! That sounds so awesome! As a fellow Tolkein enthusiast (though by no means an expert!) I would be SO thrilled to be able to look at my bookshelf every day and see those beautiful bookends! Lucky you!

  6. This is the most beautiful bookend ever! I don’t have one right now, but I would have endless uses for something as gorgeous as this πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance of winning it!

  7. love it!

  8. I admit to being one who has several *very* boring ones…the typical metal ones bought in an office supplies store. The only advantage is they are inconspicuous on the shelves as I divide portions of a row to intersperse displays of other more interesting bric a brac. πŸ™‚

  9. No bookends for me but would love one of those..so cool πŸ™‚

  10. A set of outdoor themed bookends I made in VBS several ago.

  11. Tamara Meyers says:

    I use a ceramic owl that my sister made.

  12. I’m using bags of sand from my trip to the beach last summer.

  13. So creative! My favorite bookends I’ve actually made myself: two hat boxes with stripes, butterflies, and many Eiffel Towers displayed all around.

  14. Emma Grabin says:

    My bookshelf is too full to need bookends! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance for winning this awesome decoration!

  15. Fun bookend! I enjoy reading Shakespeare. What a cool thing to have on a shelf or desk:)

  16. I use small, old mason jars filled with broken sea shells for bookends. (Utilized my rubbish:)

  17. I use random things – I have a ceramic owl that someone gave me, one of those canisters that you buy to hold spatulas and spoons in the kitchen, a big rock …

  18. I am using actual bookends as bookends, but I have piles of books lounging around waiting to be shelved and assisted by bookends. A readers life often seems like it has “too many” books. πŸ™‚

  19. Jim Tucker says:

    What an interesting giveaway. I’m still working on the end of my book! Maybe Shakespeare will help me find it.

  20. Currently, I am using that strange roller thing use to cut tapes as bookend. πŸ˜‰
    So I can definitely use one. πŸ˜€

  21. I don’t have any bookends yet πŸ™‚

  22. One bookend I have – and completely adore – is a large near perfectly rounded stone I found. I assume it had spent many days tumbling in a river to become so rounded.
