This is cute & easy to assemble- took about 15min. I was surprised by how sturdy this actually feels and really happy overall- especially given the price point (I purchased at $20/free ship- I think this price is fair for what you're getting, much over $25 and I think it would approach overpriced- in my opinion; at $20, I would order it again). The poles are all metal which makes it more likely to hold up than similar style of kids furniture we've owned that have wooden dowel rods (that have eventually ended up broken). The pockets are like a "garden flag" material, they are pretty flimsy but- again, for the price, I was satisfied. If you forced a LOT of heavier/thicker books in this over time, I could see how it may not hold up long term or the weight could rip the bottom out of the pockets.

While this is pretty small/not very high, I wanted a kids sized/more narrow shelf that could fit against the wall, in the space between the wall & the rocking chair we read in. We are also updating my 4yr old's room and I was looking for cost-effective ways to spruce it up/add some better organization - this fits the bill on all accounts. She also loves it and was really excited.

My daughter placed a mix of paperback/thinner hardcover kids books in it (herself) and on average, she seems to have gotten about 8-12 kids books (give or take) in each "shelf" - this is without "overfilling" and not feeling like they are forced in or tight. Obviously, depending on the type/size of books, amount it will hold is going to vary- thicker baby books will reduce capacity- we stuck to thinner books. I placed some of our taller hardback books in the pockets to show size reference (see pic with Fancy Nancy hardcovers); if you are using smaller/paperback kids books like you might get in a book order, this will hold quite a bit more (easily 12+ per shelf).

*I only gave 4 stars because there was one small spot on the edge of the shelf where the white was chipped slightly upon arrival (nothing I would consider returning or that impacts the use of the item in anyway, but I do expect we may see more of that with daily use- again for $20, it's not a big deal); I also think that if the material used for the pockets was a little thicker/more substantial, it would increase the durability/life of the shelf.
