Sadly I am not to the point where I am ready to pen my own books' dedications, but one of my characters is. I've been struggling with this one section and it is making for some odd eating. Let's just suffice to say that it involved Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies, cheese and an Oreo frap. So there I am stuffing the (third) Little Debbie into my mouth while coming up fairly empty in a Google search for "memorable book dedications," when I decided that perhaps I should actually look at some books. After a depressing trip to the bookstore where I saw far too many "To my wife's" and "To (fill in a single first name): thanks for being there's" I came home and gobbled up a piece of really bland mild cheddar before I realized how truly boring it was.

So I turn to you, my readers. What are some of your favorite book dedications (I don't care if you liked the book or not, but if you did let me know that too)? I'll give you a week to come up with them. Next Friday I'll pick my favorite and send the winner a knit something (as yet to be determined.) Heck, I'll even consider something you made up as long as it is witty and entertaining.

A little clarification because I seem to have confused some people. I'm looking for real dedications that you have read. My character, at this point, is irrelevant.

  1. I was thinking about some of the characters I've written, and came up with this:

    "To my ex-wife: Thanks for the sexless marriage. It gave me ample time to write this."

    It would help to know a bit about your character, though.
