Step 1: Step One : Materials
2", 3' or 4" Corner Bracket
Wooden Paint stirring stick
Jumbo Paper Clip
Wire cutters or needle nose pliers
Step 2: Step Two
1. Cut the wooden paint stirring stick in half. Measure the length of the stick to the width of the books you would like to use as the base book on the shelf. Cutting the stick in half creates two lengths that will fit a large hardback novel. to see if you have cut the right length, slide the stick under the front cover. It should be completely hidden with the cover closed.
2. Tape the two pieces of stirring stick to the corner bracket as shown. You may want to use a heavy tape, like duct tape. I used masking tape because it was what I had on hand.
Step 3: Step Three
This little piece is essential holding the back cover in place when you have the bottom book resting on the shelf.
1. Using wire cutters or needle nose pliers, clip off the straight end of the jumbo paper clip, leaving about 1/4"
2. Bend and slightly flatten the paper clip as shown
