    Great for confusing your guests

    I love this shelf and it's perfect for a small space where only the books themselves will fit. The only problem is that you need a fairly wide book to place on the bottom. My normal hardbacks weren't wide enough, so I had to dig out an old copy of a Dr. Seuss book to make it invisible.

    Very cool!

    We love these shelves! We decided to give hubby's home office a make over. It is not a very large room, so adding more of the bulky, traditional wooden bookshelves was not an option. Instead, we've purchased (over time) about a dozen of these shelves along with a couple of the "double" shelves in this line and now hubby's office is awesome!! We have a LOT of books so for us this was the solution we had been looking for! They are easy to install - all we neeeded was our trusty stud-finder & electric screwdriver!

    not as good the second time around

    I got the smaller invisable shelf first and love it, so when I went to get other one, I thought the getting the larger one would hold more weight and hard back books, but when i screwed it to the wall and tried to put my hardcover books on it, the book wasn't long enought to catch under the shelf, and I had to rig it so that it would look like it is suppose too, invisible.

    So cool it's invisible.

    Very sturdy, stylish when seen and does what it says. One caveat... it has to have a huge book at the bottom to hook properly. Normal size hardbacks missed it by " " that much!

    Another item I didn't realize I needed unitl I saw it at B&N

    This thing is great! Attach it to the wall, put a good-sized book into the slot at the bottom, stack more books on top of that, and you have books that seem to float in space. It also comes in other sizes; be sure to consider what size book you want to put on the bottom, because the book has to be at least as wide as the part that sticks out on the bottom, and it needs to be hardback. The rest of the books can be any size, any type. I have a pretty tall stack on mine, and it holds them just fine.

    Love them but...

    I bought two large books shelves and two small book shelves. I would recommend a person buy the the small ones the Large ones are too large for half my 'large books'

    Highly Recommended

    It was a little harder to find larger books to fit so that the bottom cover didn't flap. Would not feel comfortable w/the larger books on the smaller shelves though. They are easy to install, sturdy, and look great. What more could you ask for?!
