4.0 out of 5 stars My books are floating?!?!?!, February 9, 2007
These shelves are a clever idea - books appear to be floating on your wall. As one can see from the picture on this product page, the back cover of the bottom book fits into a small groove. With other books placed on top, the bottom book is held securely in place. I installed several of these shelves in my kitchen for cookbooks. They work best for relatively light, narrow books (the shelf started to strain a bit under "The Joy of Cooking"). However, only the bottom book needs to be hard back.

Installation was extremely easy -- just screw the shelf into any wall normal wall (e.g., drywall, paneling). No anchors are needed. I was a bit skeptical at first and expected for the books to fall or the shelf to bend, but no accidents after over a week. All in all, these shelves work well and are an interesting way to display your books. I just think that they should be a bit less expensive, as they're basically metal brackets; hence the four stars.

Great review, Westley. Very informative, you answered all my questions about the shelf. Your title made me laugh. :)

I think for my kitchen... I liked your idea with the cookbooks. :)

Just remember that they do stick out quite a bit (well, as much as the cookbook you use). I wouldn't put them in the path of traffic.
