Signed Books

Signed books make great gifts, for others or yourself.  If you're a book collector, you know the value a signature can add.  If you're a book lover, having that personal connection with the author makes a favorite book even more special.  We do not charge extra for signed or personalized copies. 

We can usually reserve signed or personalized books for you at our events, even if you can't make it to one - just give us a call in advance. And we usually have some signed copies available after an author event.


We also order a limited number of signed copies of upcoming books by authors in a variety of genres.


Here are some of our current supply of signed books.  We strive to keep this current, but sometimes a book will sell out suddenly.  If you add a book to your cart while ordering online, please indicate if you only want it if it is signed, or only want it if it is a first edition.  

This list is updated about every two weeks. Please, feel free to call or email to double check if something is still in stock.
