AbeBooks' Reading Copy

Signed Obama books a bargain once again?

During the heat of the presidential campaign and the months following Obama’s win, there was a hysteria among collectors looking to snap up signed copies of Barack Obama’s books, Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope leading up to the sale of a signed first edition Dreams from My Father for a staggering $12,500 shortly after his inauguration.

Over the past couple months it has pretty much been business as usual, until today when, to everyone’s surprise, Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Will the announcement spark another flurry of signed Obama book sales? It’s tough to say but this recent announcement makes the signed first edition (although a later printings) copies of The Audacity of Hope seem like a relative bargain when priced at about $400.
