Rudolph's Rabbit Ranch Bookstore and Reference
Build your own library

Unlike the books listed under "Recommended Reading," I have not necessarily personally reviewed each and every one of the following resources. These are the most recommended ones by rabbit people, so should be good. If you find my rabbit site worthwhile and are considering purchasing any of these books, it would be greatly appreciated if you would do so through this site. If you are not planning on purchasing them, you may at least use this as a reference for placing interlibrary loans at you local library. Please help make this the best rabbit reference on the net. If you know of a book that should be listed here, please e-mail me. In the same way, if you believe a book listed here should not be, please let me know. Thank you. I wish to make this a recommended reading list by rabbit breeders for rabbit breeders.
