I have a lot of bookshelves so when I saw this one on this site, I liked the looks and the reviews so I went out and bought it. I was in the market for a freestanding shelf and have purchased other bookshelves you have to constructed yourself. This shelf is beautifully made. It has three adjustable shelves and two fixed shelves. It fits right in with the build in shelves that I already have in my reading room and office. I had no problem with assembly and it took about thirty minutes to put together. Unlike other shelving units I've purchased, this one doesn't lean in any direction. The shelves are strong and don't sag under the weight of some of the heavy books I have upon it. This bookshelf is extremely heavy so either construct it where you want it to go or have someone help you move it if you're of smaller stature or weak. If you want a good bookshelf at a bargain, this shelf is an excellent buy.
