    • 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.

    • 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.

    • im thinking about purchasing this product but I'm wondering how well it will do on carpeted floors? Anyone have experience with this? Thanks!

      • 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!

    • 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? (Thank you for your help!)

      • Thank you for contacting us sw1110. You will be contacted by Customer Care.

    • My son lost the spine part of the bookcase. Is it possible to get a special order just for that piece?

      • Hello stephanie123456789, Unfortunately, we do not sell the parts individually, but we do offer different colors of this item. I would suggest buying another color to add a fun twist! Thank you for shopping with us!

    • One answer below says the unit weighs 30lbs. and another answer says the shelves weigh 8lbs each. Which is correct? And how much weight can each shelf hold?

      • Hello, sgee1. Hope your day is going well. We apologize for the confusion. Each shelf will hold up to 9 pounds. The entire item weighs 33 pounds. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

    • How are the shelves assembled with screws or slots?

      • Hello suess06, This item uses an "Allen wrench" to assemble. Thank you for shopping, let us know if you have any additional questions.

    • Can this shelf be wall-mounted? Is the base removable?

      • 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.

    • Who is the manufacturer/seller of this spine style book tower?

      • Unfortunately, we are unable to disclose manufacturer information on some of our products. However, be assured that we fully stand behind the products we sell.

    • How much does this weigh?

    • How wide is the shelf vs the base? thanks

      • The base is 16 inches wide x 14 inches deep. The shelves are slightly bigger than a DVD case.

    • Are the dimensions provided under description for the wide base, which looks wider/larger than the individual shelf stacks? If not, what are the dimensions of the base?

    • How much does weight can you put on each shelf? And are they removeable?
