Shevet HaKehosi: Piling Up Seforim
Kedushas Seforim prohibits you from putting other seforim on top of a Chumash.  What about putting rishonim or acharonim on a gemara?  The Shevet HaKehosi (2:301) says that it could be permissible.  The only time we are Makpid is by Sifrei Tanach where there is big discrepancy in the Kedusha.  However just because one sefer is considered more Kadosh than another it doesn't mean that you must pile them in order of Kedusha.  He proves this from the fact that if you have a Sefer from Nevi'im and a Sefer from Kesuvim there is not halachic requirement to put the Nevi'im on top even though Nevi'im are more Kadosh than Kesuvim.
