Booking Through Thursday: Can I have your autograph?
Question: June 10, 2010: Do signed copies excite you? Tempt you? Delight you? Or does it not matter to you?
Answer: I have to admit I think signed copies are pretty cool. I do think it's special if you got to meet the author in person to get the signature/autograph-as I did with Kate Jacobs (for The Friday Night Knitting Club AND Knit Two-at The Purple Purl knitting store nonetheless!). I did buy a book for my dad last year for Christmas and when I saw that I could get a signed copy for the same price-I thought that it was pretty neat!! It was one of the Giller prize books-I think Linden MacIntyre's The Bishop's Man. As I said, I thought it was pretty neat-not sure it really mattered to him though!!
What do you think? Do you have any signed copies? Does it matter?
