They Moved My Bowl Signed by Charles Barsotti

I love signed books, but I usually don't go out of my way seeking them out. An author's signature is great, of course, but if there is any question of authenticity it's hardly worth the effort. If a book is signed in my presence that's wonderful; at least I know it's the real thing. It's also very nice when a copy of a book comes along with both a convincing signature and a reasonable price.

Take this copy of They Moved My Bowl by the very funny Charles Barsotti. There's really no reason to doubt the signature. It's extremely plausible and the price is extremely fair. This was a good deal for someone.

Meanwhile, an unsigned copy from OwlsBooks of Toledo is described as having "A little bit of wear" with the further proviso that it "May contain some library markings." It is listed at $500. Caveat emptor.

October 6, 2012 Update: OwlsBooks of Toledo, Ohio has reduced the price of They Moved My Bowl from $500 to $1. I kid you not.

March 17, 2014 Update:
The $1 copy of this book has been sold.
