I'm sure Stallone collected those first editions and rare books because he truly loves the written word and not because someone told him they might be a good investment. Remember years ago when he sued someone he had hired to help him buy art and he claimed he'd been overcharged? I'm guessing this might be related to that.

Walter Scott? No thanks. Shell Scott, maybe.

But how many of them has he read?

My (late) friend Bob Adey, whose home was more than filled with over 30,000 volumes, had the perfect answer to people who would ask if he'd read all those books. "I'm just finishing the last one."
