Solved! How to display your precious paperbacks

So you have some prize paperbacks. Maybe you're the author, and you want to display them.

I did some extensive googling, only to reach a dead end. And then I had a weird idea.

Those plastic splatter-proof cookbook holders. Turned sideways.

Here it is on Cookbook Easel with Splatter Shield

If you click through, you'll get the same price as everyone else, but I'll get a small percentage because this is an affiliate link. I hope you feel I've earned it.

Notice that the "bottom" of the easel is instead enclosing the page side of the book. These easels really hold paperbacks together well.
