Good Questions: IKEA's Antonius Shelves for Books?

I'm interested in using Ikea's Antonius system for hanging bookshelves, but I see that they are always promoted for closets and laundry rooms (light duty). Which makes me wonder: Will they be strong enough to be loaded with books (if properly hung of course)? Does anyone have experience with these? Thanks! Kim

We are guessing that they WOULD NOT be suitable for books — they're classified as storage for clothing, and that is why they are lighter and cheaper. We'd stick to bookshelves. Anyone else?
