Rated 5 out of 5Â by PuddyTat Best buy
Over the last 10 years I have bought 14 of these bookcases. I am posting this review in response to the reviews that say they are "flimsy" and need to be anchored to the wall. Not true. My bookcases are stacked two high and totally loaded with stuff. These bookcases have never fallen over or collapsed under the weight. I have other bookcases with adjustable shelves held in by plastic and even metal pegs that have collapsed while these have held up. I have only ordered the oak finish (which is a little warmer than some of my other light oak) so I can't comment on the other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Shanneeei Great Product!
We bought this as a bookshelf for my son's room and not only does it look great, it serves it's purpose well! I love that you can add more shelves onto the top to make it taller if you wish (you would need to purchase the additional shelves though). We looked and looked for a red bookshelf and this is the cheapest one we could find so we were a little worried about what the quality would be...but we were pleasantly surprised!! This is a great bookshelf!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jeanatoverlook Nice Open Style Shelf
Nice shelves. They fold out easily so little assembly other then stacking shelves together and tapping on mantel top. It is wobbly with both shelves stacked so for safety I will be adding a wood block on the bottom and top shelf unit to brace to the wall at the stud. I think it is because the shelves are not that deep and if you bumped them the shelves could get knocked over unless braced. I do wish it had better side to side structural support.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CoachS Folding Bookcase
I was in search of a small bookcase for my den and purchased this Folding version. I was excited about the variety of colors, sizes and the price. Because the intended space is small, I decided on the RED, 27.5â bookcase. I also thought the color would accent the room, especially since my hardwood floors are Brazilian cherry. I love the color red but this bookcase actually leans more to the color RUST. It is not bad, but I definitely will not call it RED. Overall, functions well for my requirement. Recommend not stacking multiple bookcases without more reinforcement.

Rated 3 out of 5Â 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.
