    @KaBlooZio I googled it and I saw several people said they are different. I'm not sure since I'm not native English speaker ┐( ̄ヮ ̄)┌

    The difference is in the names, a bookcase is...a case, with doors or a sliding panel to protect the books while a shelf is just a shelf.

    To be fair though, most people use them interchangeably, even if there is a technical difference.

    @Sharm Is that question for me? If so, then yes, in my little world it is. Maybe it's a southern thing?

    Not to you specifically. I had no idea that the words weren't interchangeable.

    I've always called the actual piece of furniture a bookcase and the individual compartments on which you put books bookshelves. You can also get a bookshelf as a piece of furniture, which is a standalone shelf that you attach to a wall rather than being free-standing.

    Well, I'll be a country bumpkin, if a bookcase ain't a bookshelf!!
