  1. The copies themselves are worth less to me in comparison to the actual experience of getting them signed. Let me elaborate.

  2. Most of the signed copies that I have come from dear friends who also happen to be the authors. Not only are the books terrific, but having the signature of authors who are friends means a lot. The most treasured is the inscription & signature from Richard Nash on his _Wild Enlightment_. And I have a couple of books that I found with signatures that did seem the find a little more exciting.

    On the other hand, there are very few (if any) current “big name” authors for whom I would be willing to stand in line just to get their autograph. And there are very few authors that I would get excited about finding a signed copy….Dorothy L Sayers would be one. But I doubt I could afford to buy it if I found one.
