    In or On

    Is this sentence correct?

    The books are in the book shelf.

    I believe "on" is the choice preposition in this case.

    Welcome to the forums, Celine.

    I agree with Charlie: 'on' is the preposition of choice.

    Please note that bookshelf is usually written as one word.
