The bookshelf just arrived ([...] and I am VERY pleased with it! I love how heavy and sturdy it is, and it appears to be very well made with thick, solid wood. They altered the design a bit from what is shown in the picture - all changes for the better in my opinion. It does not have the "feet" as shown above. It has only 3 white pegs attached to the bottom circle, allowing the bookshelf to sit flush against the floor (I have it on carpet). This will prevent anything from sliding underneath the bookshelf. Because of this change, I'm sure, the height is actually 30" rather than the 32" advertised in the title, which is even better for our purposes. The two shelves are each about 13 1/2"H, which fit all of my daughter's books just fine. We have a couple books that are just under 11" long and they stick out a bit. It don't foresee this causing any problems, but if you have books wider than that, as some children's books are, you probably won't be able to fit them on this bookshelf. Also shown in the picture are 2 exposed screws on each of the 4 half circle bookends. These are not on the model I received (thank goodness!) It looks so much better without that! Along those lines, the verticle center boards are exactly even on the top and bottom shelves, unlike in the picture. In short, the model I received looks so much better than the picture! The only complaint I have is that it turns louder than I expected it to, but it's not bad enough to be a deal-breaker. Overall, this is a great bookshelf that greatly added organization to my child's room without taking up a lot of space. [...] Very pleased!

this rotating book case is very cute, reliable & most of all handy! I was worried that it would not fit in my daughter's all off-white room, but instead it popped out as an amazing piece. It holds even the tallest or widest books. All compartments r the same size, & the top could be used as a night stand or a side table... it comes all assembles, just unscrew three screws that hols the rotating bottom & u r ready to go!

Definitely worth the $180 ish (I think) that we paid for this book carousel. Now, all our many books are accessible to our 3 yo ... unlike before where books buried at the bottom of the bin were often forgotten.
Nice! Bigger than expected...

This carousel was well-priced and shipped fast. It is made of sturdy materials, which I like. One comment to other potential buyers... the carousel is taller than it looks. Just an FYI. Very pleased with this purchase!
Very cute, well made book carousel

I got this book carousel for my 4 year old's bedroom and it holds quite a few books. I loved that it came fully assembled and is made very well. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because if you don't have the books lined up right they can fall out, which has happened a few times when my son tried to pull a book out from the middle of a stack.
Worth the wait

This two shelf carousel was out of stock for a long time, but it was worth the wait. There isn't another comparable unit. Adorable!
