Holy Books: Correct Orientation

Put holy books in their correct location:
  • Remove a holy book from an inappropriate place to a place suitable for holy books. 
  • Turn right-side up a holy book that is upside down or backside up.
  • Do not use any holy book--even of lower priority or holiness--to prop up or raise the top of a non-holy or less-holy book (for example, so you can read it better).
Reason It is disrespectful to use a holy book as a book holder.
