I’m a book addict. I love books in all shapes, forms, and styles. Hardcover, paperback, or eBook. You name it. I’m addicted. Since starting my blog I’ve made a conscious effort to attend more book signings not only to hear authors discuss their works, but to get my books signed! There is nothing quite like being able to meet an author whose work you admire and then getting them to sign said work for you. It’s truly a thrill. With the advent of eReaders and eBooks I’ve found myself buying an eBook, learning that the author was coming to my bookstore, and buying a physical copy simply so I could have a book for signing! Of course that means spending double the money on books, but I get a signed book and to me it’s worth it.
For those of you who may be unable to buy double books and/or stick with digital books only let me tell you about authorgraph! Authorgraph offers eBook readers the ability to request author signatures on their eBooks! You simply put in a request for the book and author of your choice (of what’s available) and send a note of what you’d like your dedication to read. You will get back a PDF copy of the title page that you can add to your eReader. Voila! You have signed eBooks! I know that I’ll be spending my weekend trying to get caught up with all my requests. It’s a great FREE service that really allows just one more way to interact with your favorite authors.
