Scholar bookends

If you've been reading Grassrootsmodern for a while you should know that bent plywood and felt are like design catnip for me. I get all giddy whenever I see them. These Scholar Bookends from nood were obviously designed to keep your books in place, buy my mind is racing trying to think of what else they could be used for. Any ideas?
