Wrong way up? The indefatigible Patrick tipped us off that Pottery Barn has a new decorative shelf, called Studio Library Shelving ($120) which looks to do for books what the tall stack did for pancakes. Patrick is undecided. We give it the firm thumbs down. This is a silly waste of wood for $120. Anyone else agree?? Disagree?? MGR
