I have a bookshelf modeled and a group of 10 books (so as to not make the bookshelf look repeated), is it possible to create a driver to just drag up/down the amount of books on the shelf???

You could use particle system to emit the books from vertices:

enter image description here

The emitter is a subdivided plane, the origin of the book group (only 3 books on layer 2) is set to the bottom of the book.

Particle settings:

Uncheck Random under 'Emit from:'

  • $\begingroup$ @WorldSEnder I guess you emitted more particles than there're vertices to emit from. Either subdivide the emitter a bit more or reduce the number of particles. $\endgroup$ – stacker May 25 '14 at 17:17

    $\begingroup$ @WorldSEnder Sorry I didn't notice that I posted it with checked Random. Uncheck Random under 'Emit from:' $\endgroup$ – stacker May 25 '14 at 18:34
