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:
Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!
Yes! We're all individuals!

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..
