The Write Stuff

November 5, 2008

Prices for autographed copies of President-Elect Barack Obama’s books just took a big jump on the collectible market. His predecessor? Not so much, though those prices are still pretty high. Even so, I’m not sure a book inscribed by Gorge-Us George is worth that kind of tariff — crayon signatures smear so easily. And I like to think books are worth more when people believe the authors actually wrote them.
