You didn't say rather or not you intend on placing this "upstairs". Since, you did mention stairs, I'd like to point out that, many have "turns" that for certain objects just won't make those turns. Book shelves are no exception. You can build "in place", meaning a lot of trips up an down stairs or, as you mentioned. Smaller units that could be a "break-down" bookshelf.

"Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life". That is HONOR, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it." -Author Unknown
