(Newser) – A bible once owned by Elvis Presley was sold in a British auction yesterday for $94,000, reports the BBC. The bible was given to Elvis for his first Christmas at his Graceland estate in 1957, and contains numerous annotations by the King in the margins. "It was a really exciting atmosphere in the room, we had 300 people and there was bidding online and on the telephone across the world," said one auctioneer. "You could hear a pin drop when it sold for that price." (Read more Elvis Presley stories.)
