Oak is a good deal as it's a timber of particularly high quality and makes beautiful looking furniture. Solid oak should be used throughout the piece, even in the drawer bases and cabinet backs; these are the places where some manufactures might substitute veneers in an attempt to keep costs down. Quality pieces will facilitate dovetailed joints in the drawers, and when finished in a tough, hard-wearing lacquer such as a resilient satin for instance, this is a pretty tough piece of furniture sure to last generations.
Skateboard shelves can be hip with the kids of the house and help them put away their notebooks, while cases with integrated nooks for reading can give the kids an interesting place to do their homework. You can organize you books by color to create a rainbow affect, though the time it would take to do that could be outside of the realm of possibility. However, on a rainy day, instead of watching TV all afternoon, perhaps color-coding books could be the perfect project to brighten up your time inside. And while you are at it, take advantage of having empty shelves and (finally) dust and clean them.
Bookcases that you assemble yourself can be useful as you may not be able to fit a piece that is already put together through the door, and you do not want to damage it. For this reason always ask if you can have it in a flat pack format or delivered in parts so you or some hired help can put it together.
