  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Passable

    I own a number of spine-style shelves, but all my existing ones are Sapien Bookcases. I assumed these would be similar, and they are; however, the quality is not as good. The edges and welds are a bit thrown-together seeming, and the fact that the shelves must be screwed on instead of just lifted in like the Sapien style is a bit annoying. This makes it harder to remove or add shelves as needed. Also, the distance between shelves is less useful on this model; the Sapien shelves are wider apart and fit a good quantity of books. On these, I had to leave some of the shelves off to make room for larger stacks. I'm not a metallurgist, but the finish on these seems almost sprayed on, and sort of chintzy in a way that is hard to qualify. Also, instead of nice embedded rubber feet on the large base, these just come with adhesive pads. Not terrible, but I would actually recommend paying just a bit more for better bookcases of this style.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fine
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Decent quality, slightly shoddier than expected
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate enough

  • 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.

  • Slats misshapen

    One of the slats was bent so the shelf could not fit in. Poorly made product. We have a sapien bookshelf at home and I thought that I could find a similar product, expecting it not to be as well made, but at least functional. Proof to pay extra for a superior product that you will enjoy and will last.

  • Nice just wish it was a little taller!

    Different from other book shelves I have seen. Nice contemporary look, fits snugly into even small spaces without being too overpowering.

  • Book shelf

    I originally found this product on an expensive modern website. But I always check overstock for better deals. It was not only also on overstock but half the price! I love this piece! You can put the shelves where you want which made it more convenient for our purpose for it which is children's books.

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
