    It must be kind of sad for Bill to let go of all of those books. Like saying goodbye to his Dad all over again. I'm glad it'll be part of the Belichick collection though. A nice memorial.

    I head an interview with BB recently in which he said the collection just grew over the years. He would often see a book his dad would like and get it for him, or see one his dad had ( but he still loved) and got it for himself. He said the collection was close to 1000 books. He sounded very upbeat about giving it away.

    Thanks for the post!:cool:

    thats one way of looking at it.

    Personally I see such an event as a celebration of his fathers life and book collection. Something like a window into the man he really was. Its a positive way to help others have some insite into his life.
