Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KatM made a library in a nook
pros: the shelves were easy to assemble and were packaged very well to prevent any shipping damage. They seem sturdy. came with a small bracket to attach to a wall for safety
cons: the shelves are adjustable, but adjustments are limited. I put the 2 units side by side and the side wall of one is slightly warped so there is a small gap part-way down the center of the 2. could probably screw them together to eliminate the gap.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CollegeKid Should've gone to IKEA
Here are some things the instruction manual needs to clear up:
For anyone confused by the first step in the assembly instructions, G(2) is different from G2. G(2) refers to both boards labeled G, while G2 refers to the three boards labeled G2. Also, when you are nailing the back of the bookcase (F board, made of cardboard), make sure the finished side is facing down (towards the front), not up.
The instruction requires two people for assembly. Two is a bit superfluous--one is really all you need.
Another reviewer states that he bought metal dowels to replace the plastic dowels that support the adjustable shelves. While I agree that adjustable shelves are not needed and fixed-shelf bookcases are better, the plastic dowels do the job just fine. If you look at my attached picture, you’ll see that I have loaded plenty of books on the shelves without having the bookcase fall apart.
Ultimately, I’m not too happy with this product. If you want a cheap bookcase, IKEA has a comparable white bookshelf for a third of the price which also carries about 30 pounds per shelf and also has cardboard backing. If you want a more decorative, better quality bookcase, don’t buy South Shore.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Innkeeper Good bookshelf. Good Customer Service.
This very simple bookcase arrived damaged but the customer service at Home Depot and South Shore was very charming and I received a replacement part in reasonable time which was a pleasant surprise.
Then I was compensated me with an Amazon gift card bringing the cost of the bookcase down to nearly nothing. It was easy to assemble. It also looks clean and attractive. Pleased with the purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HOMRET Perfect fit for my limited space.
I use these white shelves for my fabric stash, folding the fabric to fit the shelves so I can see every piece, and trying to keep colors together. The depth is ideal, small enough to be able to take a fabric out without disturbing too many others, but large enough to see the print or color, and fold it without wrinkling. This narrow one is my third. The first two were twice as wide, but I stack them side by side in the hallway just outside my sewing room, and the narrow one was perfect for the space that was left. So convenient to have so many choices in size!
