The Balance Bookshelf artfully guilts you into finishing that stack of unread books

Are you a wannabe voracious reader who regularly buys books then never cracks them? The Balance Shelf could be the swift kick in the a** you need to tackle the ever-growing stack. Via a trio of wall-mounted steel pipe fittings, the $245 system boasts two wood planks suspended from black twine, each designed to support five to ten average-sized books, the idea being that you stow unread tomes on one side and finished ones on the other, thus serving as a constant visual reminder of your laziness progress.
