Here is an interesting article about the book collection of Richard Adams.  Everything will be sold at auction next month.

Wow, sounds like quite the collection. He was definitely well-read. I can see where he got his inspiration.

Wow, seems like there are definitely some rare books in his collection.
Too bad it's not an online auction, as it seems - what would I give to own a book, Adam's owned before. >w<

The English were always passionate readers. No wonder he had such a varied collection. Surely he is still reading in heaven, the great master Richard.    :blackberry2

Indeed, this is quite awesome news to here and hope Mr.Adams won't mind his books being auctioned off. He's a man whose ideas live on. It would be nice though to acquire his books. :D
