Rate this Book / Post

Very often, actually most often right after the Scholastic Sale and right before the Amazon Sale, we get requests for recommendations on awesome bookshelves as well as storage ideas.

So guess what we did? We curated a post to help everyone grab a little something to store their precious books!

Achira’s bus book stand is a superhit in the community!
  1. Here is the Bus Book Stand that Achira and her family adore and recommend and that now many members have! It comes in Red and Blue Colours!

2. Achira also has this one – Embell Products Small Book Shelves Rack for Table (Blue Color, Boom Bam Design). They come in different designs as well.

11. SS Arts Engineered 3 Tier Storage Rack – we all marvelled this in Nimisha Daharwal’s post.

New book shelf added today for little bookworm’s library… book rotation is really not our style because we like to pick and read as many books as we can 😂 …never realised raising little readers would be so fulfilling !!

12. BabyCenterIndia Pastel Book Rack – Nimisha has this as well after which many of our members ordered it! To quote her:

Totally love this shelf … we got it in Aug’19… have used and loved it everyday ..toddlers can see all the books and can pick out/put back books themselves ..plus it is still good as new!

Priya Pathak Banerjee shared Aaheli’s Corner (isn’t it awesome?!) with us that includes the same BabyCenterIndia Pastel Book Rack as well as Kurtzy Magnetic Black and White Board with Marker, Duster & Chalk | Double Sided Wooden Easel for Kids Drawing & Writing

13. a) Sakshi recently got CLASS Kid’s Book Organizer with Pastel Fabric (Multicolour) which is similar to the one above. The book shelf is actually sturdy with excellent back support in the form of a wooden bar. She did a comparison with the CALLAS one she already had from a previous kbc purchase. Quoting her:

Pros:-It is strong and firm -The metal pipes are sturdy -The screws provide are big and strong-Very easy and quick to assemble (even with a toddler around) -Wooden plank at the rear side provides additional support and makes it strong-Pastel colours look so pleasing
Cons: The material of the cloth provided does not look that strong Somewhat transparent (as you can appreciate in the pics) The previous one (Callas) we have has satin

15. DeckUp Siena 3-Shelf Engineered Wood Book Shelf – Mahima bought this one and then Asha did after seeing the picture. In fact while assembling it, Asha called Mahima to check if they were doing it correctly!

We bought at a very reasonable price and it just fits our perfect

A few weeks later this was Asha’s bookshelf which has changed tremendously since now she has 1 dedicated section for picture books, 2 dedicated sections for Scholastic books! Aarini’s books are in her cabinet in her bedroom! This book shelf is real value for money and looks extremely elegant!

16. Callas Kids Book Rack Storage Book Shelf – this is a bestseller and many of our kbc members have this. Best option for picture books. It’s sturdy and can hold many picture books. Great accessibility for childoos and it displays picture books well so they are always in front of you and on top of your childoo’s mind :). You might end up reading many more books a day owing to this display!

ps: Achira

17. Wooden World Ladder Shelf, 5-Tier Foldable Wood Bookshelf – Shaoni just got this one and they assembled it at home today! Voila!!
