This case is AWESOMENESS!

Book Reviews by Molly from Willow Spring, NC

I got my bookcase and am now HAPPILY, VERY happily using it! It is the new home of my most favorite books (you know, the ones that I just CAN'T get rid of :o)!). I absolutely LOVE this bookcase!

When I browsed through Wayfairs' websites, this bookcase was the first to catch my eye. Oh, now, don't get me wrong. There were LOTS of shelves and cases to pick from. Some were REALLY fancy, some were REALLY tall, and some were shaped REALLY different, but the one that I loved the most was this simple 3 shelf bookcase. What can I say? I'm a simple kinda woman?! Or maybe it's all the Amish books I read....I just love simple things. :o) Anyway, while it's not large by any means, it is certainly bigger than I had originally expected. Bonus for me!

Guess what else I loved about this case? I put it together by MYSELF in LESS than 30 minutes! (See pics below)The directions were simple and easy to understand, and the finished product is just full of awesomeness. Another bonus!

So, this simple bookcase is recommended with 5 stars. It's shelfing is adjustable and it's easy to move and small enough, yet roomy enough, to fit most anywhere (in a corner, by your bed, beside your fireplace,etc.). It comes in 4 shades from dark to light colored woods, but I chose the dark, and beautiful color of Cinnamon Cherry. And, for those of us who have lower income, it is VERY reasonably priced for a nice solid bookshelf.

Quality, Great Price, Smart Buy!

HRJ Rita from Not Another Romance Blog- book blog

For [$], it doesn't get any better than this! I was looking for a nice, sleek, beginner's bookcase to house the pile on the floor known as my book collection. Not only does this bookcase feature an amazingly attractive finish (I chose cinnamon cherry), but it was way bigger than I expected-which is a good thing. I am able to hold 44+ paperbacks on the first shelf and I still have room. I am pretty sure if I change the book positionings I can stuff in even more.This product is QUALITY! For assembly, I just jumped right in and didn't read the instructions- I ended up putting it together the wrong way! The wood pieces held up to the 3 unscrewings it took to get everything right. It does have a thin, board-like piece for the back which isn't wood, but unless you purposely try to punch it out, it'll hold up.it's just a stellar product.

Easy to assemble, looks great for the price paid. Good shelf space without taking up space.

Obsessed with the color

Allyson from Dix Hills, NY– Verified Buyer

This is the perfect accessory for my living room. Exactly enough space for my books and picture albums.
Price is perfect for this piece.
Assembly was decently easy.
Plan on getting other pieces from this collection with the same cinnamon cherry finish.

Color is unique.

Nice addition to any room.

Gina from Florida

I was looking for an additional bookcase (as usual) for my house that was large enough to hold the books I am currently reading during any given month, which can be rather numerous, but short enough to act as a nightstand or side table as well...a place to put a spare lamp and odds and ends. I decided upon this particular product from amongst the many bookshelving units available on the site for several reasons: price, color, and size. It fit what I needed from the descriptions, the color choices were great, and the reviews thus far tended to be favorable. When the product arrived (ahead of schedule), I was most pleased. A little tricky to put together but not any more than any other "assembly required" piece I've encountered. In short, a good quality piece for a great price. My "books of the month" now have a home and I'm one happy consumer.

Loved it so much, I bought another one!

Morning Glow [Novel Addiction] from Cincy, OH

I read a lot, and I own a lot of books, so I needed a good quality bookcase that is not too big, since I'm short on freespace in my room. [...] I went bookcase searching. This bookcase was a perfect choice. I love the deep color, and it's the perfect height to sit at the end of my bed. You can adjust the height of the shelves themselves, so I'm able to fit even my most awkwardly sized books on a shelf. The item is of excellent quality, and I know it's sturdy enough to last for a long time. I am incredibly bad with any sort of home improvement projects, so I was a little worried about putting it together myself. However, the instructions were crystal clear, and I had my bookcase together in no time. As I said, I loved this product so much I now have two of them! They both sit in front of my bed, holding my favorite series and novels. This is definitely a bookcase I would recommend to a friend, especially if they need a smaller one that won't take up a lot of space.

Made of pressboard not real wood so don't expect to last. Tacking nails a little big for putting on back sheet as causes pressboard to chip off.
