2-piece solid cherrywood bookstand can hold 'some' open books such as cookbooks or textbooks, or a book with a verse or song for reference - please note that how well the stand can hold an open book depends largely on the specific book's binding, weight and dimensions. More suited towards thin or medium thickness hardcover books.
In particular however, we like this book holder to feature a story to be read later with young children or a seasonal book for the nature table. So, it is ideal for display.
When the book holder is not needed, it can be easily pulled apart and stored flat to save space.
