That is a horrible way to store books; it will break the bindings and stress the pages, possibly ripping them or ruining the print on them!

I could never stand a bookshelf that damages books that way.

I think if the cross poles were thin sections of metal, it would suit alot better (like a bookmark). Even so, I think rough and ready paperbacks are the candidates here.

It isn't very efficient on space. Which is great, if you only own nine or so books. But with the dimensions of this shelf being so similar to a traditional book /shelf/ you could store far more with a bit more wood.
