I won a signed copy of First Daughter by Eric Van Lustbader from Shelf Awareness, so I now have three copies of the book. (By the way, the book is excellent. A real page turner.) So, I'm sharing the wealth: two lucky folks who have commented on the giveaway post will be receiving copies of the book. The contest doesn't end until July 30th, so there's still plenty of time to comment if you haven't already.
My signed copy joins a small but much-treasured group of signed books in my library. So, signed books: Do you have any in your collection? Were they obtained in person at a book signing or by other means? If you could have one book that you own signed by a deceased author, which one would you pick? I was thinking about this earlier in the week when my mother surprised me with a very nice first edition of Tim Russert's Big Russ and Me. My first thought was, "I'd love to get this signed! ... Oh." It still hasn't sunk in that Mr. Russert is no longer with us.
