I ordered the bakers rack to use as a book shelf. It worked out great. The shelves are deeper than most bookshelfs, so I am able to double up on the paperbacks per shelf. It really opens up the room, and I am able to see my books and magazines much better. As usual, Overstock did not disappoint me with the quality. I love the size, five foot, hard to find. It is well made, and very sturdy. I've actually thought about ordering another one for other areas of my home.
