Reading Bear Bookend
I purchased a pair of these clever bears for a 23rd birthday gift for my son. He is an avid reader and I thought a very appropriate present. He is so happy with them. They are a nice weight and really so cute holding books! Very happy with the purchase. You won't be disappointed.

I bought this bear for a teacher who was retiring - it was such a hit! Everyone wanted to know where I got it.

Very happy with purchase
I ordered reading bear bookend as a decoration piece rather than a bookend. I'm an avid reader, and aspiring writer.. however by day I'm a computer engineer. The Reading Bear was to be a nice decorative piece for my desk to serve as a reminder of my passion. I was so impressed with the quality when it arrived, the attention to detail, and the overall style of my purchase, that I immediately purchased a second for my home office. I would recommend to anyone who glances and thinks "I'd like to have that" .. you will not regret your purchase.

Bearnard, The Litterary Bear
Bearnard, who is actually an Accadian Black Bear, speaks and writes French fluently, of course, but is, and has, for a number of years, been a dedicated student of Latin. The book you seen him pouring over here is Cicero's Ex Officio. Unseen is his much-thumbed copy of the venerable Lewis and Short Dictionary of Latin. He usually sits on it, but due to his rather, ah, generous posterior, it is often hidden. He can produce iti in an instant, however, and with his index claw, flip to the correct tab, and quickly select just the translation which is preciseto the context. I highly recommend Bearnard, as his studiousness is contageous. He even has me reading Ex Officio, but I have to wait my turn. He loves it, but says he finds it idionatically challenging. Well, I tell him, think of it as an incintive. Tedium, he says. Bears. Always have the last word.

I love this little guy!
I actually use my reading bear as a door prop instead of a bookend. My office door doesn't like staying open all the way and he sits at the base of it to to hold it open against the wall and greet people! He's plenty heavy enough and visitors love him.
