Easy to put up. Screws included (though not wall plugs.) Use a spirit level on the horizontal or your books will be squint.
To give you an idea of its size, my lowest book (the one that stays there permanently) is a hardback gardening book measuring 9"x12".
At the moment mine holds a Beano annual, IKEA catalogue, National Geo mag, Chambers dictionary, crossword book and three other paperbacks. And I think any more would be a bit unstable.
Really pleased with its simplicity. Wish I'd invented it myself.

I first saw these in a Swedish design store (not the one you would first think of), and got them through Amazon when I returned to the UK. They have quite transformed my messy loft/office, which now looks rather professional and well organised. Super for small spaces that need some organising and where a conventional bookshelf would be too large. Easy to put up (but be careful and use a spirit level to make sure they are straight), and handle about 10 books apiece.

Decent quality, no sharp edges, easy to fix to the wall but if I had a complaint it would be that finding the bottom book in the stack can be tricky. Because of the depth of the bottom plate a "standard" hardback isn't deep enough for the cover to catch on the "hidden" lower lip.

On the other hand it's an excuse to trawl around bargain bookstores to find something suitable. My tip is pick a book you'd never read in a million years and bamboozle house guests when they see you've taken an interest in "Knitting For Profit".

Beware - this item does not fit standard paperbacks. I'd read other reviews on this sort of shelf that mentioned sizing. So I measured the width of the books (spine to page edge) and deliberately chose this Umbra SMALL. However, when you actually place the first book onto the shelf, the 'hooks' that hold the cover in place are about 2mm too short to grip the back cover and are too deep to take just the thin cover. If you try to fix the cover + a few pages, the situation is worse because this pushes the book further forward - away from the hooks. In desperation, with pliers, I squeezed one of the hooks to make the gap smaller and push it nearer the front edge of the bookshelf. This sort of worked but cracked the white paint covering which then flaked off, leaving silver metal. Where the shelves are located, it doesn't show and my 10-year-old isn't too fussy. But at £23.90 for 2 shelves, this was a real shame. The product looks and feels fantastic but simply is the wrong size for UK books! Delivery was quick but I hadn't expected 'signed for' so hadn't arranged to be in.

I use this for storing my computer games, my nephew was round the other week and was mesmerized as to how they were floating. I naturally told him that it was in fact magic and he should stop asking questions or the dementors would get him...

This was received the next day. It took me 15 minutes to gather the tools and fix the bookshelf. It works as described and it now holds 8 library books no problem. Weight is not a problem, and it could take many more before any bending.

nice product, stumped my dad for ten mins as he worked out how books appeared to be floating against the wall. everyone who has seen them has liked them and all inspect how it works, some gave up, thinking I was Harry potter and promptly call a vicar to perform a exorcism. Would recommend these shelves (Not the exorcism!).

This book shelf requires that the bottom book of the stack is incorporated into the support system and is therefore relatively difficult to access for reference. A quirky, novelty item, it is an immediate eye catcher. The quality is entirely adequate for purpose and invisible once stacked with books. The base book must be a suitable hardback.
