Meme (Bookish One Again)  
Taken from book_memes:


How many books do you have which are signed by an author or illustrator?
Hmm...about 9 or 10?

Which was the first one you got?
I think my first might have been my copy of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon.

Which was the most recent?
My copy of The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet by David Mitchell.

Have you ever bought a book already signed by an author?
Nope, never.

Have you ever forged an author’s signature in a book?
Errr...no. Why would anyone even do that?

Which of your signed books has the best story?
Getting my copy of Number9Dream signed by David Mitchell on my birthday. The brief version of this story is that in the end he wrote me a happy birthday and drew a little cake in my copy. I treasure it like whoa.

If you could pick one book you own by a living author to get signed, which would you pick?
Island by Jane Rogers

If you could pick one book you own by a deceased author to get signed, which would you pick?
There are so many but I'll go for a whimsical one: The Twits by Roald Dahl.

Do you have a signed book which you haven’t read yet?
No, I tend to read them right away.

Have you ever gone to an author signing and not gotten your book signed?
Oh, all the time. I've gone to reading/signings and only stayed for the former.

Maybe if they were selling it?

Like this meme.
