I had a small area of wasted corner space in my kitchen. Many cook books since I love to cook but no place to put them. Stacking two of these book cases together in the corner space worked out perfectly. I can easily see all my cook books and the book case does not interfere with the working area in the kitchen. They were beyond my expectations when it came to assembly. There really wasn't any real assembly except to insert the little pegs in the pre-drilled holes so I could attach the two cases together. The shelves just pop up into place. No tools requires except maybe a little rubber hammer to make sure the pegs are secure but really not even that. Once the books were in the place the weight pushed the two cases together without further effort.
Folding Corner Bookcase

Setup couldn't be easier! It simply unfolds. Screw in the bottom center-peg and lightly push the top piece in and you're all set. It's set up in the corner next to my computer desk and the wall. It holds various paper pieces and small computer components with ease. Don't put anything fragile on this unit if you're using this unit on a carpet as the unit doesn't feel as sturdy as it would on a more solid ground. Additionally, the bottom center-peg is slightly shorter than the legs of the bookcase. This may be a slight manufacturing defect with my unit (and it wasn't bad enough to prompt me to return the unit), but I thought it was worth noting.
Seems well-made, easy to assemble, folds away just as easily.

I'm pleased with my purchase. I bought this to go with some shelves I had from another manufacturer. The color doesn't match, but I didn't expect it to. The size and shape are perfect for my needs. It arrived promptly, and was in good condition on unpacking. I had it up and assembled in moments after taking it out of the box. I think it is technically stackable, but I wouldn't stack this size just because it is so tall and narrow, I don't think it would be very stable. Maybe if you anchored it somehow you could stack two of them. I'm happy with my purchase.
The white is a true white (not ivory). Assembly was easy.

The white is a true white (not ivory). Assembly was easy. One issue was that the holes in the top shelf were not drilled precisely for mounting on the frame. Also, one of the three dowels (on which the top shelf is to be mounted) is sunken in further than the other two dowels. The metal brackets that hold the lower shelves to the frame are gold-colored. I would have preferred silver-colored hardware because it would have matched my decor better (silver lamps, silver drawer pulls, and so on).
Great item for the price
Bruce from CA – Verified Buyer
Assembles in about 2 minutes. Good quality construction. Had a minor problem with one of the hinges (stripped screw), but easy fix with a drop of wood glue. I bought two in the hopes that they were stackable, and they were! I don't recall this being in the product description, but i may have missed it.

my wife bought the first one. Now I'm adding to it. these are well built and that is coming from a retired wood worker.
More than expected-LOVE IT

I have one similar to this that I purchased from a chain store several years ago. This one is MUCH better as it has a top that you can attach (I think its supposed to have holes drilled in it, but mine did not so my hubby fixed it for me) and the little leg in the front that you add ensure stability. I will order this again.
Just as pictured. Love tem

I ordered 2 in white. And thankfully, they are really white. They are not very deep - I wanted to use a couple of shelves for wine bottles. They fit on their sides, but barely. That said - they are perfect for many uses, solid, attractive, no assembly needed, and I have them in my living room in the corners. They will match anything.
Debbie from Surprise, AZ – Verified Buyer
I give this a three star rating because it does not sit well on carpet. I ordered this to put in the room my grandchildren use, nd was so excited to see this as it matched the existing 3 shelf flat folding bookcase already in the room. It fit perfectly at the end, and I was going to buy another for the other end. Unfortunately, no matter what we put on it, books toys, puzzles, it would tip over too easily. We have it in a carpeted bedroom, so maybe on a hard floor it would be ok. My husband ended up screwing the two pieces together so we could use it. Good rice, very simple to assemble. Came in good condition. Otherwise very pleased with product.

This was a great addition to our guest room where I needed some display areas and shelves. The color matches the golden oak headboard and was pretty tall. Sturdy enough for what we needed. Pros: Easy to assemble
