(Newser) – In 1959, the year after she died, one Elvis Aaron Presley scrawled a note to his mother in a Bible: “I love ya mama,” wrote the King, who then signed his name and listed relatives' birthdays. Elvis also noted that he owed an uncle money, the Daily Telegraph reports.

Elvis supposedly kept a Bible in every room at Graceland, but that doesn't mean he got around to reading them all. "It’s a sentimental Bible to him," says the collector who currently owns the good book, but "you can tell when a Bible’s been read, and this Bible has never been read.” (Read more Elvis Presley bible stories.)
