White Solid Oak Stackable Folding Bookshelf
I'll never buy another kind of shelf again
As an avid reader and book collector, I've gone through a LOT of bookshelves. For the price, these shelves are an excellent value.
They're solid wood and can hold up to a lot of weight, even heavy artbooks and "coffee table" books. I've had several for years that never showed the strain of such weight. You could pay a similar price for a particleboard shelf that would bow under the same conditions within 6 months.
Assembly is a snap, even if you are attaching two together to get a 6-shelf unit. All you need is a screwdriver. Portability is a definite plus, especially during moving. Lugging a non-folding shelf up stairs is a real pain, usually requiring at least two people. One person can carry a folding shelf with ease.
I love the look of them, light and open without sacrificing strength. I have plants on a few of these and they wipe clean of dirt and water without any problems. The only con I could think of is that they don't come in more colors, but I suppose you could always paint them. I'm in the process of getting rid of all my other bookshelves in favor of these.

First was Broken
I got it home to find that one of the shelves was broken completely in half, even though the box looked in tact.
Exchanged for a new one that we opened and inspected in store, it was fine.
Overall, I am happy with the purchase but would suggest having them open the box in store to ensure it is in a good condition.

Foldable Bookshelf Rocks
I just bought a second one of these. We don't have them stacked, but I LOVE them. They folk for easy moving, look nice, have clean, simple, lines and are quite functional. The only downside is the pain scratches really easily, so you have to be careful when moving them around or with what you put on them. When moving, wrap them in a LOT of moving plastic wrap.

White Stackable Folding Bookcase - WOW!
I have received my order of 5 Stackable Folding Bookcases in white. All arrived in perfect condition. No assembly required. Remove unit from package. Fold both sides to front position. Three shelves fall into place and I was good to go. I like the idea that these shelves are so portable. Great product. FedEx delivery person was timely, courteous and cheerful.
