To take a little diversion from the regular news, ThinkGeek has just launched a new product that you might be interested in. If you have lots of books on your shelf, then these new Build on Brick Bookends may just be the thing you need. The set of two bookends have an exterior building surface that are compatible with many construction bricks including LEGO. They also have metal slides for under the books for more stability.
I’ve reviewed ThinkGeek products before including their Build on Brick Mug and the LEGO bricks seems to stay on pretty well. I assume the plates on the bookends will work just as good. You can now order them on their website and the set of two will go for $19.99.
