This review is from: South Shore Axess Collection 5-Shelf Bookcase, Chocolate (Kitchen)I own 175-200 books, and after my old shelf bit the dust, I decided to invest in a new one. The South Shore 5-shelf bookcase has been nothing but wonderful, and I have no complaints. My sister's boyfriend assembled the shelf, and though he is probably the LAST person on earth to deserve the title of "Handyman", he got this shelf together in about 45 minutes and moved it from my living room to my bedroom without any problems. It holds my 200 or so books without buckling, and though it is cheap compared to most bookcases of its caliber, it can be passed off as an expensive piece of furniture. However, some might be disappointed because it is not an entirely wooden case. The back is just a piece of board that is moderately thick. I have no problem with this, but I just thought it was worth mention. I recommend this bookcase to anyone like myself--a college student on a budget who is looking for an effective way to store his/her books without breaking the bank.

Thanks! This is very helpful! I have two old small shelfs that I stack on top of each other because I only have room for one. It looks tacky, and I can't take it anymore so I will probably buy this. The two I own are old and flimsy. However, the two cases did not fall over (they wern't secured) a couple times when I bumbed them and thought they would.
