  Billy's Answer

My response is, "Yep!" Almost all of the shelves in my two tall, inexpensive particle board bookshelves are bending slightly. If I had more money, I would construct a genuine wood wall-to-wall bookcase; hold on, if I had more money, I would purchase a large home that already included a library.

  1. Sounds like a good plan. A house with a built-in library. :D

  2. I need that home library, too. My bookselves are in decent shape, however. Which is surprising given the number of books I have on them.

  3. A house with an actual library would be brilliant. We have a very small room which we have turned into a bookroom and I love it.

  4. Yeah, I am definitely noticing the lesser quality shelves are starting to dip. What's funny is everyone always dreams of having the Beast's Library from Disney's Beauty and the Beast, me, I just want the shelf space! I have the books to fill it, don't need any extra, plus I'll have room for new releases too! Lol!

    Here's my BBH

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. We used to have pressboard shelves that bowed under the weight of books. We've been fortunate to find several much sturdier bookcases for sale for not a lot of money (thanks, Facebook Marketplace!). So right now, our shelves are all in good order.

  6. I would like a library. We used the spare room as a library, but then my son was born so that got rid of that!

  7. Surprisingly my cheap bookcases are not buckling no matter how many books I shove into them.

  8. Mine actually are not buckling, and I hope they don't.

    I hope you can get a new bookcase, Billy, or a house with a built-in library!! :)

    1. This is Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews....grrr on this Anonymous thing. I'll have to look and change it before I post next time. I'll change it now.

  9. boy howdy, yeah. Bowing like crazy (I prefer to spend money on books rather than quality shelves)
