This is what I've got for my bookshelves so far... and as you can see, it's not straight.  It's still a little wobbly because I haven't put in a crossboard I intend to add to limit racking, so I think I can secure it right if I can get it right.

What do I do to get this guy to stand up straight?

I also put a crosspiece at the top, but it's still a good suggestion. I'll wiggle it when I get home. Thanks!

the suggestions below are all workable.

Using a sheet of plexiglas for a back would allow let you see the wall behind the shelves.

Next time around, Woodshop I:  Shelves inset into dadoes on the sides.

Dadoes are simple to cut if you've access to a radial arm saw., Just make sure the boards are a tight fit.  You won't need any nails or screws, just wood glue to secure the shelves
