I don't know about you but my paperback cookbooks have precariously placed heavy objects to hold them open on the counter and also get covered in food splats! Problem solved... I found this genius idea on Facebook yesterday, one of those ideas I wish I'd thought of myself!

Jen's Just Desserts have taken the idea and made it uber-cool!
Pimp it up by covering the unsightly plastic with a pretty fabric or spray paint it to match your kitchen's accent colours.
