We usually tilt the last book on the shelf in order to prevent the books from falling. A wide variety of bookends are on the market for the same purpose. Bookshelf’ solves this problem by creating a radius on the shelf to keep the books on the shelf to one side without the additional rectification. The natural shape allow the books to fall into place naturally.
