Searching for a bookcase

I'm looking for a specific type of bookcase but don't know what its called. It looks like a wooden version of one of those trollies that delivery people use to transport boxes but without wheels and you pile books on it. It's freestanding and just keeps the pile of books off the floor. i want to use it for my piles of hard backed library books.
Any ideas anyone?

You don't mean something like a kinder box do you? You can also get revolving wooden bookstands.

Thank you but no, its more like a ladder bookcase but you just pile the books on it and it doesn't have to lean on a wall. We stayed in an apartment in Melbourne last year that had one and I've wanted one ever since. I'll try and do a diagram of it , my art isn't good enough for a drawing. smile

Maybe a v shelf bookcase? If you google search, there are lots of photos of antique and new styles.

Something like this? www.amazon.co.uk/Bookcase-Sapiens-H-152cm-shelves-White/dp/B00IJ8MVPC/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_bs_lp_tr_t_1?psc=1&_encoding=UTF8&tag=mumsnetforum-21&refRID=BZJNQVX29RKBBM8F168F
I have a similar one which I think is called a book spine but I can't find it on sale in the UK (a few US websites have it, but I got it from UK ebay ages ago).

Do you mean something like this?

(But presumably you'd want a cheaper one as that is very expensive!)

We have this from John Lewis, any good? The little lip at the back stops books falling off at the back.
