music blog graphic for David Archuleta's blogs“Hey all! Just thought I’d give an update with what’s been going on lately. Since the book is now out, I’ve been doing book signings! The ones in New York and New Jersey were awesome! I also got to do one in Minnesota at the Mall of America and ride some of the indoor rides they have in the mall. Pretty fun stuff! I then got to go back home for a couple of Utah book signings. The first one was in Salt Lake City, and the second one was in Orem. They were both great! It was fun being surprised by people I knew coming by and seeing them in line haha. It’s been so neat getting to see everyone after such a long time being under a rock recording and writing. Thanks so much to all of you who have been coming out to the signings!….”

Archuleta sisters browse bookstore.

Salt Lake City Deseret Bookstore, 7 June 2010

I just caught this one! David’s sisters Claudia and Amber are milling about behind him while he signs books and chats with fans. At one point David is talking and listening to everyone at once! He says to the bookstore employee in the white shirt, “That’s my sister,” while responding to a fan about ordering the salad with “extra lettuce.”

The fan from Toronto tells David, “Snow Angels with a zed—zee.”

Claudia is wearing the white and yellow halter top and Amber is in a green shirt.
