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.
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!

5 Reasons To Take Paperbacks To A Book Signing
- Get Them Signed!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
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.
