Very much like the earliest bookcases that adorned the elegant libraries of Europe in the middle ages, solid woods are still used on most high quality bookcases. To this day, solid oak is the material of choice in that it affords durability, style, and beauty. It is used in many styles that are popular today, including Mission, Traditional, Colonial, Shabby Chic, and Contemporary.
Some bookcases have open shelves on top and doors on the bottom, which is very handy for storing games, art supplies, whatever you might need but want to keep out of sight below and display books on top.
Now, with the advent of flat TVs, you can use bookcases to surround your TV, pretty much like an entertainment center would. You could even rest the TV on the bookcase, but you would probably still need to bolt it to the wall for security.
