Do signed copies excite you? Tempt you? Delight you? Or does it not matter to you?I'm starting to care, but mostly I think they're neat when I can get them, and not so important otherwise. It's the experience of meeting the author that's meaningful to me. I had a great conversation with Lauren Myracle the other day at my fabulous local bookstore, Nicola's Books. She had Gary Paulsen visit a few weeks back, but even though it was cool to meet him and get a signature, I don't think I'll carry that memory very far. Lauren Myracle, on the other hand, made an impression because she took time to talk with each of the people in line (mostly tween girls) and give them her sincere attention. That's pretty impressive!
