Done! Thanks, jkt and JC! It is the perfect metaphor!

The ReUsePeople and the F451 Bookends Project are allowing RB to "Live Forever" as they protects our books and the wonders they hold. As in the conclusion of Fahrenheit 451 when Book People did exactly the same.

Mr. Bradbury's life, works, and now his home - "Great Stuff!"

It has been pointed out to me that they have held-back a few bookends for people who actually visit their Los Angeles Facility.

I see that 2 sets of bookends have already sold on eBay. One set for $275 and another for $300 plus 17.00 shipping.

All remaining sets have been sold. There are none left to be had from ReUse People. And I know who got the last two sets. :-)

I was wavering a bit, and thinking about breaking down and getting a set...oh well. Guess that makes my decision easier.

This totally sucks, as I have discovered does most everything in life and probably a lot of things in death as well.

Not all of my 451 editions would fit on this shelf.

In the spirit of Jaws, that most quintessential of Independence Day movies, "You're gonna need a bigger shelf."

What a cheeky price - 451 dollars! If I were British (and I am, in fact) I might say that the eBay seller is taking the p***.
