None of my paperbacks are signed, but the 3 hardbacks are.
I've thumbed the paperbacks so much that I would have rubbed off any signature anyway, so I'll stick to getting unsigned copies! :D

Hellooo and welcome Rose 2. None of mine are signed either and more than a few are first editions. :D

None of mine are signed, either.
A lot of them are reprints from the '90s.

Getting books signed is just a nice way to meet Terry. But if you come across a rare book, getting it signed will boost the price considerably.

Yes, but in that case you don't want a personal dedication. "To Fred from Terry Pratchett" will be less saleable than just Terry's signature (unless the buyer's name happens to be Fred). :wink:

I remember Terry once asking someone who wanted a book signed, if he should make it out to 'Dear eBay customer'. :lol:

Very true, I do have a couple of dedicated books but I try to avoid it unless for specific occasions.

The exception is of course presentation copies. So a book signed for example to Ian Stewart from Terry as a gift would be a lot more valuable
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
