Can these be stacked on on top of the other? Maybe somehow bracing it to the wall? I want them to have a really tall look, four side-by-side, twice as high (if that makes sense). I plan to use them in my office and use those fabric baskets in them. It will be neat and look organized.
I don't see why not, except that if you're not careful it could be dangerous. If you're a capable handyman type and adequately secure them to the wall, they should be fine. Keep in mind that screwing the thin back panel to the wall may not be sufficient. I would probably try to put a few boards against the sides and back and screw through the sides into the boards and through the boards into studs. These really aren't meant for that sort of stacking, so you would want to be sure they attached well top to bottom, too.

OK, thanks. I bought one from Target once and it came with a piece that screwed into the wall and into the top of the bookcase to keep it from toppling over. This was NOT stacked, but since it is in a child's room it was good to keep it from falling down in the event they would climb on it. I was thinking something of like that, but maybe not the smartest idea if I have to do too much work since I am only a 'modest' do-it-yourself-er.

I just thought of a great invention.

A skinny and tall shelf called the eBook Bookcase, or Kindle Library Bookcase...something more witty.
It would just be a very thin shelf that holds 1 book aka an ebook. It would be one of those things that people ask about when they see it in your house.

I'm just going to buy a bunch of ereaders each with only one book and just use them on a normal bookshelf.

From my experience, ALWAYS can be returned in store if you don't mind lining up for an hour to do so.

They'll hold up well. But there is no doubt that your probably better off disposing of them when you move rather than taking up the time and truck space to move them.

I don't know if I agree with this. I have six bookcases very similar to these in quality that have been through six moves and they're still fine. I'd rather do that then spend ~$200 on shelves every time I move.

I think he means a stand for your kindle that looks like a mini bookshelf.
A neat idea.


Just noticed these are 24inches wide, I think i'll wait to look at them in the store.
