Unusual and fun
Richard Caitlyn from Ashburn, VA
These shelves are a great idea. They mount easily. Then, you simply slide one hardcover book's back cover into the little catch, and stack whatever other books you wish on top of the first. You start with the largest book in the stack, and then choose progressively smaller books as you go up. The shelves are rated for 15 pounds each, which is probably five or six hardcovers on average (you can stack paperbacks, too, except for the first book) depending on their size. Removing any book for the first one is simply a matter of sliding it out of the stack. Of course, these shelves aren't going to replace an eight-foot bookcase. But as an accent, they create a great effect: your books appear to be magically floating on the wall. We hung three of these in an area of our main floor we call our reading nook, and we couldn't be happier with them.
Conceal Wall Mounted Shelf

This shelf is the most fun you can have when stacking books! The ingenious design allows you to use a book as the support shelf, then stack up to 5 pounds of smaler books or lightweight objects on it. And when you are done, all you see is the stack! I love the first 2 up so much, I plan on installing 6 more ... and that is just in the living room! The large shelf is better for heavier books, like references and text books, while the smaller shelf is great for lightweight books, like Sunset's Garden books or your favorite paperbacks. I wish I had these when I lived in the dorms! A great way to keep books handy and off the floor without filling up available desktop space.

I love this shelf! I would recommend getting the smaller of the two however. I chose the larger and had a hard time finding a book big enough to set the rest on. I didn't use the included drywall screws, but rather chose to hang it upon a stud. It is very sturdy and I have no fears of it failing. You won't be disappointed with this purchase.
Wall Book Holder
Patricia from Natchitoches, LA – Verified Buyer
I bought this for a family member who has everything. He is very hard to buy for at Christmas, and I try to buy something that is different, yet useful. This will be good to place on the wall near his bed, and I know he loves to read.
What a conversation piece
Pamala from Michigan – Verified Buyer
Love, love, love, we have had books in plastic bins for years and these now allow us to display, make them easily usseable and take up little space - don't cheat yourself - order more than you might need - be sure to check the weight restrictions - this will not disappoint.
Really interesting way to show off your books
Carrie from Cincinnati, OH – Verified Buyer
I love the concept of this ,but it's not the sturdiest shelf. Better for paperbacks. I wouldn't bother to buy the small size. The large holds more weight. I bought 6 of them and they look great staggered on an odd wall. Pros: Easy installation and unique ways to display cherished books Cons: Doesn't hold a lot of weight

I actually bought this for a small netbook resting shelf for my daughters room and it's working great for that purpose
Works like a charm!
Heather from Solana Beach, CA – Verified Buyer
These little shelves work like magic turn your stacks of books into wall art. Just note that medium to small books work best. This is a definite recommendation for the person that has book shelves taking up space.
Clever design and works perfectly.
Pamela from Falls Church, VA – Verified Buyer
This is an ingenious design and it works perfectly. I didn't use particularly large books nor a very high stack and it seems like if the books were heavy with a lot of photos or glossy paper, the books might droop, but for regular books, it's perfect. I love it.
Unique item fills my need!
Pamela from Manitowoc, WI – Verified Buyer
I purchased this shelf because I had no where to put a book shelf unit. I only wanted to have 5-6 small cookbooks out by my kitchen desk for creating menus. This shelf unit really looks cool!
