It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems IKEA has a poor shipping policy for this product. Arrive and one of the upright boards was cracked in half. Not able to see until after the box was opened. Took over 3 weeks to have delivered, 1st time truck showed and didn;t have the order. The shipping company they use is sub-par. Wait time to get resolved is unreasonable. 90 minutes first time to see why not delievered, and over 66 minutes to get them on line for broken part. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full disclosure I just bought this unit yesterday - most of it anyway. I was unaware that this wasn't one complete unit and was, in fact, three separate bookcases and three separate height extensions. One of the bookcases was out of stock so I'm waiting on it to arrive. Further, Ikea makes nothing to connect these bookcases together to form a single unit, as portrayed by the pictures. I'll probably end up going to a hardware store to buy mending braces to connect them. See https://www.realcoake.com/how-to-connect-freestanding-bookshelves-or-storage-shelves-together/ for more information on this. Also, in the instructions, the L-shaped brackets shown to attach the bookcases to the wall depict long screws to attach to the wall - these screws are not included. Otherwise, the parts I have look great, work well, and I look forward to getting the final part in about two weeks. Yeah, that's the next time my local store will get resupplied. Not happy about that part. These reasons are why I didn't give higher marks below.
