If youre like me and appreciate simple style, basic design, affordable price, and easy assembly -- and you like your books organized well, then this bookcase is a great bet. I actually purchased two of them, put them side by side behind my sofa and use them as a room divider. They work great in this function. I give his product five stars for having great quality for a great price.
Quality of the product was good but was missing a screw and pieces to attached one of the feet of the bookshelf. But the look of the bookshelf is great and looks higher end that most bookshelves seen here.

Perfect. Just perfect. I ordered this bookcase into my office to have at hand all my books that I use very day. Near the comfortable storage option this bookcase has a beautiful and really natural look. Every part is made of top quality materials and assembly was really easy. Price and service as exceptional as always. Thank you.
We are extremely happy with the Havana bookcase. It arrived in just a few days. It was immaculately packaged with obvious care, so when we opened the box, each piece was scratch-free and in perfect condition. There is some minimal assembly which took a very a short time. Now our bedroom has a little more organization and style, and we didnt have to go to Havana to get it!
I love this bookcase. It looks very nice and well worth the price. Love it!

The product is well made, but the overhang sizes were not given so the actual shelf length is less than 36". The main issue with the product is the shelf heights. Because there is a reveal to make the shelf look wider, it is difficult to put an ordinary hardback book on any shelf. If you tip them, they go in but look stuffed because the top edge of the books either disappear or are crammed against the shelf overhang. It might be better named a display case because it is a poor example of a bookcase.

I gave this two stars only because I love the color. Otherwise, the product was received damaged. Several of the corners were dented and smashed in. However, I was desperate for a bookcase after shopping around for a few weeks. It would have been such a hassle to pack this back up and ship back so I decided to keep it. I would suggest to look around for something else for I am very disappointed with this product.
After purchasing this bookcase from another site (Overstock was out of stock) and receiving a damaged shipment, I soon realized the other company was a nightmare to deal with. I have received damaged shipments from Overstock.com as well, but was always met with quick response and satisfactory results. Thank you Overstock.com! As for the bookcase itself, very sturdy and beautiful once completed. Will not disappoint!
I use this beautiful bookcase as a TV stand for a smaller TV in my study. I needed something narrow for a small room and wanted storage/display space as well. This works perfectly on both counts! I use attractive baskets from IKEA as storage. The bookcase was fairly easy to assemble and is well made for the purchase price. There were some small nicks on the edges of the wood on arrival but nothing that detracted from the overall appearance. I always have wood scratch remover on hand so now you can't even find the nicks.
The bookshelf is nice. Easy to assemble. However I ordered two of these and one was damaged upon arrival. I contacted Overstock and they had a replacement delivered within about a week. The company never contacted me about returning the damaged shelf. When I opened the replacement it was damaged as well. Luckily I was able to swap out parts from the first. I love the shelves, just a little wary of the shipping process.
When I received the merchandise and got it out of the box, two pieces of the bookcase were damaged and broken. Because I already had all of the pieces of the bookcase out of the box and (and had all of the white Styrofoam pieces scattered all over my apartment) it would have been impossible for me to have gotten the bookshelves back into the box in order to try and ship it back. It would have never fit back into the box. I ended up having to use wood glue and superglue on the broken pieces of the bookcase in order to put it together. Once I got it together, I noticed that on one side of the bookcase had the paint scraped off of the corner of it. (I had the bookcase laying on carpet while working on it.) When putting the screws in the bookcase you could hear the wood cracking as you tightened the screws. The bookshelves were damaged before they were ever shipped to me. I was very disappointed in the condition of them for the price that I paid for them. Luckily for me it is sitting in a back corner and not out in the open. But I am still VERY disappointed that they send out damaged merchandise. It makes it very difficult to ship heavy merchandise back when you are a woman trying to handle something very heavy!! But it is put together now, and in a corner. It is a pretty bookshelf, but it is not well made. I would not recommend this to someone e
I really like this bookcase. I have put a lot of furniture together, and this was relatively easy. Follow the directions, and one person can have it completed in less than an hour. The bookcase is very sturdy, holds a lot of books, and looks great! I'm using this piece in a bedroom, and have placed a flat screen television on top. This bookcase does not have a back, so take that into consideration when you are trying to make a choice.
