    What if any consensus is there as to the number of copies signed by King/Hill?

    @bookstoreday tweeted that there were fewer than 300 bookplates signed. And 60 stores ordered the bookplates. I was told by one book store that the books sold out in under 8 minutes.

    I keep hearing 300.

    I would say many more tried to order the bookplates - but it was like a King limited sale - if you were too slow - you missed out. I spoke with several stores that said you needed to send your request in at 1201...they got there's in by 1202 - and the signed copies were gone. That was from at least 3 stores which I spoke with. So many tried, only a few succeeded - and it seemed that shops had anywhere from 2-5 signed copies - since I know of several that only had 2 copies.

    I donít understand the prices we are seeing for the S/L of In the Tall Grass. There are UK signed Limited editions of similar limitation, and better quality, also signed on a book plate, which go for half of this.

    This seems like a $300-400 book, at most. What am I missing?

    (Not that I have any skin in the game Ė I neither have one, nor want one, as I collect UK editions primarily. Iím just very concerned that the hype of the moment is costing people a lot of money, and so few are questioning the wisdom of these sales)

    You arenít missing anything. People are gouging for as much as they can for anything king right now.

    Wow. Wow. Wow. Just recieved my copy from Gibson's Bookstore, NH and it IS signed! Never thought I would be able to get one by online ordering. Happy Camper.

    Also, have a couple of extra of the non-signed from my binge buying if anyone is looking for a copy.
