More Markus Zusak

I'm sorry I'm sorry! I'm so not done yet! I know you are all getting quite sick of these posts, but I have a couple more things to share. First I forgot this picture in my wrap up post, and I think it's too fun to not share:

We are so excited!!

Second, I wanted to post some pictures of the actual signings so you can see what we mean when we say, "he took time." Plus some of the others that were there may be curious as to what ended up in all the different books. I know I'd like to see what ended up in every one else's books!

This one for Yamile, and what he wrote to her after I told him
I was getting it signed for her since she couldn't be there.
I didn't see this until way after when we were comparing our books.

Okay, so NOW maybe I'm done. Just maybe. Except, I did want to post a review of I Am The Messenger... and I also wanted to do a Character Connection on Ed I think... but maybe I'll wait until next week. You'll be ready for more Markus Zusak next week, right? Please can I?


  1. Thanks for sharing the signings themselves! It's just making me more jealous though...

    It's awesome that he makes them more personal than most authors. Love the pictures and the cool-looking signature too.

  2. I think I'm going to skip uploading my videos - yours are much better and more thorough :)

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
    I was dying to watch the video again after live broadcast via Library. Your post is also very nice, I'll keep coming back.....

  4. I am so envious! You really got to meet him! Thanks for sharing the signings!

  5. You can blog about Markus till a certain place freezes over! I'll never get tired of reading about him.

  6. I'll bet that line to get books signed was slow moving with all the effort he put into signing. But well worth the wait!

  8. Thank you for posting the videos! I really wanted to listen to the lecture again.

    Also, since I'm on a Markus Zusak high, I went and bought a used copy of Underdog on Amazon. But then, I noticed that they are releasing it here in the U.S. on September 1, 2011! It's available for preorder on Amazon!

  9. Agh! Sorry for the slew of comments. I just looked at the new book more closely. It's called Underdogs, it's hardcover, and it includes The Underdog, Fighting Reuben Wolfe, and Getting the Girl!

  10. Holly: Next time. They say he's coming again. Then you can stay. But be prepared to stay the night!

    Melissa: Even if you don't upload your videos... I'm still waiting for your post!

    Sorilla: No, thank YOU! Glad you enjoyed them, and do come back! :)

    Aths: I really DID get to meet him! It's still amazes me!

    TG: Okay, I will keep blogging about him, yes.

    Lisa: It was very very slow. I learned he was there until 2:00 a.m.... and of course people waited!

    Jessica: AWESOME news! I'll be buying it. I can't believe you found The Underdog though, did you pay an arm and a leg for it? Looks like this version that's coming includes all three, that's cool.

  11. Thank you so so much for the videos! Watched and loved everyone, Markus Zusak is such a good speaker! That even seemed fantastic, I'm very jealous xD Also, to Jessica-- WOAH I am buying that! Can't believe I never saw it!

  12. I'm so happy you posted what he wrote and I can't wait to watch the videos you posted.
