When Authors Tweet Me :)

Social media sure is great. Last night a few friends and I were discussing the awesomeness of one of our favorite authors on Twitter. The subject got brought up that we all had friends with conservative reading habits and so when we suggest a book we might warn of language or a particular scene.  AND GUESS WHAT!!! He totally joined in on the conversation!!!! Yes MARKUS ZUSAK, author of The Book Thief, and my favorite, I am the Messenger. YOU GUYS this made my day!

I first read his books when he came to Utah for a signing (almost two years ago). I've been a fan since!

Then, a few hours later GUESS WHAT!!! I got another tweet from the lovely Morgan Matson (Amy & Roger's Epic Detour)! Grated it was about our choices for delicious snacks on our Monday night movies but still! I love getting the chance to hear about the normal lives of some great people, and sometimes, if you're lucky, hear back from them!

MZ is the best. I sort of expected him to tweet us back because he has done it before. He is awesome to respond to people. If you look at his Twitter feed you'll see all the different things he is saying back everyone, and you'll learn a lot about what's going on with him that way. SO... I actually wasn't surprised that he tweeted us back, not to say that I didn't go around grinning all day about it! I did get a kick out of the fact that he truly sounded BUGGED that some would be offended by his little bit course language! I LOVED that for some reason. We got him fired up! Ah, he so awesome.

He really is. I used to follow his feed more closely but haven't in a while so it was fun to hear from him!
Wasn't that so funny!? I wonder if I'd act gracious though if something I wrote people said, "I had to warn my friends" haha.
