+1. If you have lots of books, Billy is neither a durable, nor attractive bookshelf.
Also, forget about taking IKEA stuff apart to move. Once they are assembled, they can never be put back together as tightly and solidly as the first time.
That said, I've bought three IKEA kitchens to install in rental units and they are great options for the price considering the flexibility, convenience, delivery time...
