This is my 2nd purchase of the same bookcase. I wanted two. The 2nd purchase came with both side panels cracked; but replacement of the pieces was simple enough. Customer representative was helpful and efficient. I did not have to wait long for the replacement pieces to arrive. The bookcase looks really nice and can be easily incorporated into any room. I purchased them for my library and it made the room look organized. There's enough shelf space (depending on how you arrange the height of the shelves) for a good size amount of books. I had a lot of books and they all fit.

These bookshelves are wonderful. Very classy. Lots of room. I love the drawer at the bottom. Some people complained that the back panel is too flimsy but it is undetectable really. The only problem with the flimsy back is that it doesn't add to the bookcase stability. This may become troublesome as it ages. But all in all...a fabulous bookcase at a fabulous price!
My husband and I are very pleased with this bookcase - it looks great and holds a ton of books. Also it comes included with the no tip strap for those of you with little ones at home (we have a two year old, so this was definitely a positive for us). I would definitely recommend this to someone if you're looking for a nice bookcase to add to your house.
I was so excited to receive these for my office, but such a disappointment!! One of the shelves on this came damaged. The directions are incredibly difficult to understand. After hours of trying, we could not get the pieces to tighten. Its really not a very good piece of furniture, I am sending it back.
Very nice bookcase. I put it together myself in under an hour and it looks great (true white) and is really solid. The drawer at the bottom is a nice touch. A about Overstock - the item arrived with a damaged shelf. One five minute call to Overstock customer service to explain and they quickly sent me a replacement shelf. Really outstanding customer service.
It was not difficult to put together but it does require patience. It was not a problem for me but my fiance gave up after 40 mins of trying to figure this out. The instructions were not extremely easy. If you're handy with putting furniture together....this is not a challenge. If you're not, you'll need help.
