Default Signed "Faithful" by Stephen King

I have a growing signed book collection, most found at various thrift shops or book shops. I have major political figures, sports figures, actors/actresses, historical figures and authors in my collection. Today I found this beauty at a Goodwill. Excited since he's a Maine resident, Sox fan and major literary figure. Also on a Sox book is even better.

The only Black Friday shopping I do is Barnes & Noble for the signed books. I think I have about 20 signed books now.

Thanks, sorry about the side photo. It was correct on my phone and not sure how that happened.

I was shaking when I found it- have probably looked at hundreds of King books and many, many of this book.

I of course read it back in the day.

Interesting idea. What's the discount on BF? I have a B&N 20 minutes away.

I probably now have 2-300 signed books. I think I need to take an inventory since I'm now piling them in multiple rooms

There is no discount unless you are a B&N member which is well worth it. Black Friday is just the day that they put the signed books on the shelf. There is no extra charge for an autographed copy, they charge you the same as they would for an unsigned book. They usually have a selection of 50-75 signed books to choose from.

edited to add: they also are very good about making sure the autographs are legit. Last year they pulled all of the Brian Wilson books when they found he had used an auto signer.
