Great Gift!

Comments about Levenger Reading Bear Bookend:

This gift was the hit of Christmas. I'm always looking for something a little different to get the addicted book collector in the family that has everything. The detail on the bear is amazing, you absolutely think this is how a bear would look reading a book, and the wire reading glasses make it just adorable. It's solid, heavy, and would keep the heaviest/most unweildy row of books from falling over. Great conversation piece.

I intend to buy another of these "Reading Bear Bookends!"

Comments about Levenger Reading Bear Bookend:

I bought the "Reading Bear Bookend" for an avid and erudite bibliophile, scholar, and librarian as a Christmas gift. It is of excellent size, weight, charm and detail ! I would most certainly recommend this product to, or for anyone who especially loves books and believes that 'words' are the most lasting source of true 'magic' in this lovely old world.

Pooh Bear's daddy

Comments about Levenger Reading Bear Bookend:

LOVE THIS BEAR !! . Purchased one in early 2014 (when the price was $79) along with a different bear bookend which is no longer offered - he is sitting on top of an open book.... and had the pair on my counter top holding up several cookbooks. I decided to get another of this bear so I have a matched set..

Yes, they are pricey.... but OH SO CUTE !!! reminds me a lot of a big Pooh Bear ! And heavy enough to keep larger books standing upright.

King Bear

By

Comments about Levenger Reading Bear Bookend:

Here at the university where I work, the Bear is king. This fellow is our school mascot, and the Levenger version suits us perfectly! Bears are not just athletes. They also attend classes, teach classes, write papers and love learning in general. Bearnard belongs here at our school and he knows he is just one of us. Already, I have passed along the Levenger link to other Bears who plan to buy Bearnard. He is a Bear, after all !

Guaranteed to make you smile...

By

Comments about Levenger Reading Bear Bookend:

My first loves in the Ursidae family are those of the polar variety, but I am an equal-opportunity bear lover. I purchased this little fellow more for form than function; it's difficult *not* to smile when looking at him perched on my desk amid the rather dry files that also reside there. He speaks to my love of reading and I think I identify with him a bit as well... since I often find myself leaning forward to find that optimal angle at which my bifocals enhance, rather than detract from, the reading experience!

Well-crafted and utterly charming, the Reading Bear is a wonderful addition to the bookshelves or desktop of anyone... but especially bear-loving readers!

Most Happy Bear!

By 

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Levenger Reading Bear Bookend:

I smile every time that I look at this bear. He is a happy bear because he is well made, top quality, heavy as a bookend should be and is reading a good book. His name, Bearnard, suites him well. You also should see this bookend bear's young sister, Bearnadette, the Reading Bear Pen Stand (item AD6880). I bought one and then the other--- they are two happy, reading bears.Most Happy Bear
