  • Quality book tower at half the price of others

    I saw my first book tower in a retail store in black, and knew it was just what I needed, but it seemed very pricey. On checking Overstock I saw the same idea, but in silver grey instead of black, and at just over half the price. Now that I have it I realize that the color barely shows, and makes no difference. It was delivered in near record time. I assembled it myself, and it was quite easy, even though I had read a review that said it was difficult. Believe me, it's easy. I am very happy with the purchase and the transaction.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Picture was very accurate
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was excellent, heavy, well balanced, sturdy
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description of product was absolutely accurate

  • Decent copy of more expensive version

    I have been looking to get the vertical book shelf offered by stores such as DWR and Chiasso, but the cost + shipping surcharge was too much, in my opinion. I saw this version on Overstock recently and after reading the reviews, I ordered it immediately. Bottom line: It is a good quality product, but it lacks the same design aesthetic as the other offerings. It is not glossy powder-coated steel. Rather, it is textured steel with a light gray color. It also appears slightly more boxy and bulky as far as the footprint, which is larger. It only comes in one height; I would have preferred another 12-18 inches. Even so, it's a great buy for the price and $2.95 shipping, and once you cover it up with books, it mostly disappears.

  • Spine Book Tower

    I always wanted one of these to store those "look at books" that we usually put on the coffee table, but the towers that I saw were always too expensive for my budget. It takes up so little floor space and stores so many books. I was a little concerned when I saw the five-pound per shelf limit but the heaviest books are on the base and everything is fine. It was easy to assemble and my friends rave over the "book sculpture" in the living room.

  • cool!!

    I have been eyeing these spine bookcases all over the Internet. Many companys and manufacturers offer them in a ton of price ranges, most of them at least 60 to 80 dollars more than here. I bought this and placed it in my bedroom. I am very satisfied. It took my husband about 8 minutes to assemble and he had no problems whatsoever. All pieces were completely straight and perfect. The shelf holds a lot of books for the small footprint size. I would recommend this to my friends, that is if they don't already die wanting one when they see it. It's so much better than those cheap compressed pieces.

  • Catchy

    Love it! Make sure you understand how tall it is. As another reviewer mentioned it's a little shorter than I anticipated but once filled with books it looks amazing. All my guests are perplexed and intrigued by this unique book shelf. I bought one but plan on buying another to create two seemingly precarious towers of books aside my sofa. Great price for such a distinct piece.

  • Easy to put together

    Nothing you have to put together is ever perfect, the holes were a little off here and there but once it was together it was wonderful and I love it.

  • Ugly, but what can you expect?

    This item is as pictured, I just wish I had bought something else. I use it for towels in my contemporary bathroom. I roll up the towels and stuff them between the shelves. I don't think this items would work very well for books, as it is just not that sturdy.

  • Just as I expected.

    I was looking for a book storage without having to buy a traditional bookshelf. This definitely fit the bill. It takes up so little space and holds so much. One of the screws have me a little trouble but after a minute I was able to thread it in place. Set up took about 15 minutes. Great buy.

  • Spine book shelf

    Great bookcase which takes up very little space and keeps all your books and magazines organized and within easy reach. Very solidly built and a great addition to my office.

Hello, amr13213. As long as the pile of the carpet isn't so high that you can't get the base to sit level, it should function perfectly well on carpet! Thank you for your inquiry, and have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 6, 2015

I purchased this item 3 years ago and love it. I just moved to a new place and need to reattach the spine to the base. I can't locate the screws I need to do that. I think I can just buy new ones at a hardware store. What do I need to ask for? Is it two on the bottom and two at the side of the base, or is it only 4 screws?

Can this shelf be wall-mounted? Is the base removable? kwerling on Apr 6, 2013
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

Thank you so much for your interest in the Spine Book Tower. The manufacturer tells us that it is wall mountable and the base is not removable but we all know that in America that this great country was built on things we were told we should and shouldn't do. The whole unit has to be assembled so if the base is just not put on then it is removable and you can do anything you want with your unit, it's yours and if you want it on the wall then it can be mounted on the wall. We hope this was helpful and have a great day. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 12, 2013
