How many books can a Billy bookcase hold?
Also to know is, how many books can a standard bookshelf hold?
If your collection is mainly fiction and you like to read it over again and again. Then a standard bookshelf or library cabinet will do you well. On the bookshelf, you can place either 25 identical thick books, or 45 thin books.
Also to know is, how much weight can a Billy bookcase hold?
The Billy bookshelf is made of very thin particleboard. It will hold the weight of the television, especially if you affix the bookcase to the wall with a bracket as Malcolm intelligent suggests, but I'm very certain that the top surface panel would begin to sag and give, even under the weight of 43 pounds.
All bookcases have a depth of 11” (28 cm). The IKEA Billy bookcase series is a classic design with an emphasis on functionality and flexibility.
