Would Benq W1070 overheat if...
The W1070 has an exhaust on the front but has an air intake on each of its sides.
Therefore the recommendation for the unit is not to obstruct it on either side for at least two (maybe even three) feet. The same applies to the front - but not the back of the unit (so having it with it's back flush against a wall isn't a problem)
So while it might not explicitly overheat, you might shorten its lamp life or the life of the unit itself as it'll be running hotter than it should...
So no, I wouldn't recommend confined bookshelves unless they allow ample space on each side: it looks like the one you've found is a bit small for this purpose: this projector runs hotter than most.
