Signed copy at my library!!!!!!!!!!!

Just wanted to express my absolute astonishment and near mindless excitement at the fact that my college library has just gotten a signed copy of TBOE!!!!! I glanced over at the new books shelves and of course it caught my eye, so I picked it up reverently (I already have it and have read it several times, but I had to admire it, of course!) and I noticed the little gold sticker on the front, proclaiming that it was a signed copy. So I frantically flipped through the first few pages until I found the page with his signature. The voices of angels sang in my head and I felt myself filling with a heavenly light-- okay, that's a bit much. But still! I'm happy!!!!

On a side note, the signature in that book is only Jasper's first name, which surprised me. I thought he usually signs his whole name? The signature looks just like the examples on this website, so I'd assume it's real, but it just seems strange that he would only sign his first name. Anyone have any idea?

y copy, signed in my unworthy presence, is also first-name only, and also includes an NCD "Evidence" stamp.
