To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are perfect for any library of the macabre. Honestly, I think they look even better in person than they do in the photographs. They arrived well-packaged and in great condition and they're now doing a great job of holding up some of my books.
The one thing you might want to be aware of is that, while they're well made and quite sturdy, they're not particularly heavy. If you're worried about heavy books toppling over, you might want to supplement these with either some extra weight or anchor them to a strip of metal extending under the books. On the other hand, if you're just using them to hold two or three average-sized volumes, you'll have no trouble at all.
On the whole, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. They're a welcome addition to my library.
These bookends look great, but they aren't heavy enough to support many paperback books if the books lean at all. I still like them, but I'm going to have to figure out a way to add weight to the bottoms of them so they can support more books.
