Book signing for Kindles

So, what is the poor author do do when somebody who has bought the Kindle version of his book brings the device in to a book signing?

I expect the ideas we came up with for the Reader would probably apply.

I was almost in the situation! Jim Butcher (the Dresden Files) was at a local book store and I thought about having him sign the inside cover of my Kindle. I had just finished the first book and thought it would be cool.

But then I couldn't get off of work in time.

But it's still something that would be cool. Imagine the inside of your Kindle cover filled with different authors signatures. That would be pretty cool...

they could put the book on a small memory card that is placed in some nice packaging. and then sign the packaging.

The nice packaging for ebook thing has been done --- William Gibson's _A Book of the Dead_ if memory serves, though it was a floppy.

Also nice was the packaging Apple did for their game _Through the Looking Glass_ --- I've always wanted to find the time to take my copy to MacWorld and try to get all the developers to sign it.
