More on Michael Phelps' books

Apparently Phelps-mania includes book collectors as well as sports fans. Michael Phelps' 2004 autobiography, Beneath the Surface, was one of AbeBooks.com's best-selling signed books in August.

The online marketplace for used, rare and out of print books actually ran out of sellers offering signed Phelps books, despite prices that ranged up to $325, according to Richard Davies of AbeBooks. The Olympic swinmming sensation's book finished 9th on a Top 10 list dominated by Stephenie Meyer's vampire books.

So check your shelves for a copy -- maybe you can snag an autograph at Phelps' big homecoming event in Towson and Baltimore on Oct. 4. Or get that autograph pen ready for his new book, Built to Succeed, which is due out in mid-December.
