I open the front cover of each book and check to make sure there’s space for me to write. I write my name and look up to check that I’ve got the right details – I don’t want to get the inscription muddled up.
I wonder a little if this bears any relation to a proper book signing, how an author feels when they sign their name in the front of their book, trying not to make a mistake.
Tomorrow I will take these books to work, to the pub, to anywhere that I can find non-readers. And give them away.
