Rated 5 out of 5 by VikingMama Great little bookcase!
I ordered this in the Dark Mission color and liked it so much I ordered a second one. Good-quality wood and stain, and was very easy to assemble. Love these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by rc58 Not well constructed - highly dissapointed
This was not at all what I would expect from something I purchased from LL Bean. The pieces were not drilled correctly so the bottom shelf in higher on one side than the other. Additionally there it arrived pre-dented - marked on the top and on one side. This was a present - I kept my mouth shut but I have to say I was highly embarrassed looking at it once I put it together. I thought given the price I would be getting a quality piece. This was not the case.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mairead27 This is a bench with 2 small shelves Not abookcase
I was seeking a simple, short and all wood bookcase for a child's room. It was disappointing .once assembled and I stepped back to view it. The top leaf is bigger and hangs over the selves like a seating bench. I positioned the adjustable shelf in the middle and it is clear, they will not accommodate anything but the shortest books(height is 7 and 3/4 ins), The piece of wood trim at the top goes around the front and back of the shelf and makes it even harder to get books in & out. SIGH,now I'm out at least $30 when I return it. Perhaps would make a better TV shelf...Don't be fooled by all the 4 star reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthWoodschick Great size and style
We actually purchased the under window shelf to use as a tv stand in an area that was a bit cramped. It's narrow in width and the perfect size. Assembly was easy, it's sturdy, and totally met our needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMLabbe Mission Under-Window Bookshelf
This is a cute little bookshelf. Even though I looked at the dimensions I envisioned it to be larger. Anyway, I've already ordered a second one to match. The wood is very nice and it assembled easily. I also purchased the Mission Storage Console and find it equally as nice. My husband put the Under-Window Bookshelf together by himself, I assembled the storage console and it would have been tough without a second person.
I would recommend both items. I look forward to purchasing more items for my living room.

Heavy oak wood bookcase, with three shelves, nicely finished. Took longer to assemble than we were told, but not not too difficult .

Rated 5 out of 5 by WoolyMD Simple, Perfect
The bookshelf was simple to put together and fits perfectly between our two windows in the study. It was bought to hold a 32" Samsung Smart TV and cable box. It works perfectly for this task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gowithllBean Perfect for under a window
I like to call and talk with a "live" rep. That way, the order is always
correct and they make sure I use my coupons/points. But mostly because LLbean reps are such nice, helpful people!.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Toughtofindanickname Disappointed
The main problem is that this book case wobbled when put together. Only 4 screws on each side. Second problem were the dimensions. Only the very top is 12" deep. The bottom shelf is 9 inches deep. I purchased this to store 12" photo books. On the positive side, the wood is beautiful, it was delivered quickly and Customer service is great. I am fortunate to live near an LL Bean store and was able to return it and lost only the $30 shipping. This item has lots of great reviews. Sorry it didn't work for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scadv Perfect for the price
I set this bookcase up by myself without any difficulty (though it would be a tad easier with another person). It fits perfectly under my window, and will be good for plants on the top and books below. I have it in the lighter stain, which matches perfectly with the previously purchased tall bookcase of the same stain (despite a few years in between the purchases).
