"I've got your hacker jeopardy answers right here"
The Wall of Rigor!

I am in desperate need of bookshelves (update: not anymore!). Desirable traits include:

  • Ash/matted black wood (but not steel, at least not any steel cases I've seen)!
  • 72 inches high or more. 76- and 80-inch shelves aren't rare by any means but do narrow things down quite a bit
  • Either no doors, or the ability to easily remove them without disfiguring or damaging the case
  • As rectilinear a form as possible, and little wasting of space by moulding, thick sides, etc
  • Solid top

Some nice ones:

Too many books, too few bookshelves
