5 Reasons To Take Paperbacks To A Book Signing

–Enter the Giveaway below!–

Just because we’re book lovers doesn’t necessarily mean we have a library full of books. I, for example, have only a handful of paperbacks on my shelves. Out of every 100 books I read, 99 of them will be on my Kindle.

For that reason, I don’t have loads of paperbacks at the ready to be signed by my favorite authors when I meet them. But there’s something about having my FAVORITE books signed by their authors. It’s a way to mark a book I enjoyed something so much, I went out of my way to show my love for all of eternity.

5 Reasons to Take Paperbacks to a Book Signing

If you’re like me and don’t have a lot of paperbacks, you’ll want to start stocking up on your favorite books now to have them signed at Shameless Book Con 2016 in October!

Need a reference to know which authors are signing? Check out the updated list on the Authors Signing page.

5 Reasons To Take Paperbacks To A Book Signing

  1. Get Them Signed!
  2. The main reason for taking paperbacks to a book signing: you want the author to sign the books! Spending a few pennies on a souvenir that the author wrote, touched, signed to you, and – if you ask nicely – kissed, is a lovely reminder of something that made you happy.

  3. Connecting with the Author

    It might only be a minute or so that you spend with the author when having her sign your favorite book, but I can promise you, that minute means the world to that author. Not to mention, you will remember meeting her and telling her just how much you loved her book.

  4. Supporting the Author

    By purchasing a book you’ve already read – either because you borrowed it from someone or you read it on your Kindle – you’re giving extra love to an author for writing so prophetic, it will stay with you for-ev-er!

  5. We’re Visual People

    We like looking at things we love, right? It’s why we plaster our walls with pictures of Balthazar Getty and Leo DiCaprio when we’re tweenagers. The same goes for our favorite books; we want to have visual reminders of books we love.

  6. We Like to Hug Things

    Think ahead to when you’ll be standing in line with 1000 other book-obsessed fans, hugging your favorite books like they’re long lost loves. You’re welcome!

    I have copies of The Girl in 6E, Blindfolded Innocence and the Bend Anthology I need Alessandra Torre to sign. NEED. And I ordered a signed book from Tiffany Resiz – she did the inscription but didn’t sign her name. I would like to meet her to get it signed. :)

  • Stephanie W

    I would absolutely get Some Sort of Crazy and Some Sort of Love signed by Melanie Harlow! This series just grabbed me and hasn’t let go! I am the lucky and “Happy” recipient of a signed copy of Some Sort of Happy. ;-) To have the entire series signed and to get to meet the author in person would be a dream! ♡

  • Marcy Meyer

    I would definitely take the Pucked series to have Helena Hunting sign, as well as Big Rock by Lauren Blakely. I would also get anything signed by Tessa Bailey, another Hard Ink book by Laura Kaye and something from Laurelin Paige.

    I’m hoping to get anything bought and signed by Tiffany at Unholy Days on Sunday. If not her, Christopher Rice. That was my major fan girl announcement
