Gandhi autograph


A children's librarian was going through our book donations and found an easy picture book about Gandhi, called I Am Gandhi. There was a sticker on the cover that said "Autographed Copy!" This caused a bit of a double-take when one looked at it. But of course the book was written only seven years ago, and the author was Brad Melzer, not Gandhi.

So no Gandhi autograph, alas.

The librarian started to walk away with the book, but I stopped them and asked for it. I signed the inside cover, "Gandhi", with a bit of slapdash flourish, right next to what I took to be a genuine Brad Melzer signature.

No point in disappointing anyone else.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
