Let's say if a full book tour happened, and Linda said she'd sign one item, in addition to your book (totally hypothetically) what would you have her sign? An album cover, an old ticket stub, a t-shirt? If I had to pick one item, it'd be this...

A vinyl copy of Heart Like a Wheel is the first thing that comes to mind..
Exactly what I was going to say. I have a copy of "Heart Like a Wheel" that I purchased on ebay......in almost mint condition. I can't think of anything more fitting for her to sign. The album that put her on the map and made her a household name in the music industry for years to come. I also have a beautiful art print that would be cool for her to sign. It has three different poses of Linda. Very gifted artist.
My vinyl album copy of Living In The U.S.A., which is how I really found out about Linda when I was eight years old back in 1978.
"I think honesty is of the first, utmost importance in art... any art. After that comes technique and... after that comes talent. Honesty is first. All the rest of the things are important, too, but they're secondary. Without honesty, I don't care how much technique you have, you have nothing."--Linda Ronstadt

For me, in addition to her book (of course), it would be my vinyl copy of Mad Love. Not only because (as mentioned ad nauseum by me) it's my favourite album, it's the only vinyl copy I could find of Ms. Ronstadt from my parent's house!

Short of that, it would have to be my vinyl copy of Don't Cry Now, the first album of hers I bought, the very next day after seeing her on TV. It took all of my babysitting money. But it was worth it. I still play that album (albeit on CD) to this very day. That album was the beginning, so it's fitting for her to sign it.
And after all, I've spent a lot of "babysitting money" on her over the years!

My vinyl copy of Greatest Hits, the first album of hers I bought, when I was 12, back in 1976 after seeing the commercial - the one where the tv screen was the album conver,and the circle black & white photo came to life, with her singing the opening of When Will I Be Loved.
