Help me find a grooved wooden shelf to hold an open cookbook!

So I just had a flash of brilliance for my kitchen. I want to put a small shelf, somewhere around 18-24" wide by 5-6" deep on the wall behind my prep table, so I can then prop an open cookbook up against the wall and follow the recipe without taking up valuable prep table real estate. I = GENIUS!!!
So you'd think any shelf would do but ideally the shelf would be grooved along the outside edge to keep the cookbook from kicking out and falling on my enchiladas. Almost like a plate grooved shelf but with the groove on the outside edge instead of the inside edge.
Anyone know of such a thing? I can make it if I need to, but I'd rather buy it! It can be any kind of wood but I'd prefer it to be natural, not painted, and definitely not particle board.
