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.
It is important that a bookcase is practical for your room. If you have a lot of books then go for a floor to ceiling one, if only a few then you can get one half the size which you can rest things on top of. This is good if you have a rather small room as you can place a television or stereo set on top, as well as decorative ornaments. If in a lounge or dining room why not go for a semi bookcase or bureau style which has cupboards for the bottom half and shelves on the top. This has extra storage potential for all of your belongings.
Cube style shelving is an open style with no back to them which makes it ideal for a room divider, between the living and dining areas for example. If you prefer one where little fingers can't get into then glass doors are convenient as the items inside can still be viewed but not touched. Or for a completely practical item check out those cases that double as a TV stand, whereby the TV sits on the top and books or the DVD player, magazines or similar are stacked neatly below.
