This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I've once again, with permission from Leesester made my own multiple slot bookshelf using her's as a base. Now you can have full decorative functionality! You should probably pick up Lee's deco books first found Here This one is cloned from the base game one, which should be much more useful to those of you who don't have teen style, or Ikea. This should be 100% base game compatible, if it's not then please let me know, and I'll try to fix it.

I've included two files. One is for if you have Base Game, but not Freetime or Apartment Life, the other file is for if you have Freetime, or Apartment Life (since those EPs came with special bookcase functions).
