Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HC Easy to order, nice product, it arrived promptly but with a small crack...
We loved the bookcase. It was well wrapped up in the box but somehow it arrived with a 3-in fine crack on top anyway. Because the crack is on top in the back we are using it, just too cumbersome to send back.
They should have better QA before sending things. However, since the crack is visible and it was wrapped up I am also thinking the following: they should not send damaged goods and just wait to see what happens.
Thank you for the opportunity to provide a review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lfdude Great little bookshelf!
This shelf perfectly fit a spot in our daughter's room, came fully assembled and helps us keep her room in order. It appears to be of very high quality. If you do not plan to stack the unit, you will need the top piece, which is sold separately and not always available here, but can be found elsewhere online.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sundog Swaying without a breeze
Very disappointed in the quality. I have two others of this style that are quite old. They are so much sturdier and heavier. I thought the mantle would stabilize the swaying but it doesn't. I also tried tightening the screws. And the mantle doesn't fit snug no matter what I do. Also, the hole caps on the sides are too big for the holes so they really don't fit properly. I would never consider stacking 2 of these, it would be disaster!
Pros: Nice honey color, no assembly required, portable, good size. A mantle is a nice addition. Very good customer service.
Cons: flimsy, sways even when fully loaded with books, Mantle doesn't quite fit snug, Not a good value for the money, would never buy another or recommend

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Antiqueshop1028 Great folding bookcase
I recently purchased this bookcase. I have others similar to it & love the fact it requires no assembly. It costs more than others I've purchased elsewhere but the quality is better. The stain color is true to the photo on the website. I recommend these bookcases to anyone needing additional storage who doesn't want to assemble the item.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMAVON Don't Waste Your Money On These
I bought 2 bookcases and a mantel. Both book cases are wobbly and unstable stacked or unstacked. I need to add bracing to make the units secure before they can be used. But then, that would defeat the purpose of having a folding, stackable book case. The holes for securing the mantel to either book case top were not aligned to the pegs and no amount of hammering or muscle made the mantel fit. By the time I take the effort to retrofit these 3 pieces, I could have bought something of better quality.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DocPR Okay bookcase
I purchased four of these bookcases. They are attractive, but the construction is flimsy. They are definitely NOT the sturdy, thick wood kinds of bookcases I was expecting. Stacking them was not as easy as expected, either. The wood was warped just slightly, so it made it really hard to line up the pegs on the bottom of one bookcase with the pre-drilled holes on the top of the other bookcase. Finally, I have these bookshelves on carpet...not a good idea! These bookshelves (stacked tall like I have done) should only be used on tile or hardwood floors. These shelves looked a little like the leaning tower of Pisa before I added stabilizers at the bottom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HannahHoch Solid bookcases, easy assembly
I am so happy with these new bookcases. I got two of the 27.5" wide ones and stacked them and they are very sturdy. The pieces are simple, the red color is deep and just dark enough that it doesn't look fire engine red. The whole look is quite harmonious with the rest of the room. I'm very pleased with the price, and the incredibly easy assembly. The instructions recommended that two people would be needed to stack them but I (a 5'2" woman with limited armspan) was able to manage lifting and fitting one on top of the other.
For a price similar to other big box stores, this bookcase definitely beats theirs for quality, by a lot. It's a really great value.
