Authors Signing eReaders Instead of Books

Would you let your favorite author sign your Kindle, Nook, or iPad? A new generation of readers have adapted to a new kind of autographing.

eBookNewser wrote about a Kindle owner who has collected autographs from Gary Vaynerchuk, Jim Kukral, and Steve Garfield on the back of his Kindle. You can see Kindle scribbles on the photo above, via Flickr.

The post offered this advice for autographing eReaders: “The signatures are on the back of his K2, which might be a problem. The K2′s back is polished metal, so I don’t think it will take much to wipe it clean … I plan to collect signatures on the cover, not the device. The cover should last longer, and after the ereader died I still display the cover on my bookshelf.”
