RUSH: Laura in McFarland, Wisconsin. Greetings. Great to have you. You’re with us next. Hi.

CALLER: Hi! I have a question about your book series. I have a couple of grandsons I’d like to purchase books for.

RUSH: Yeah?

CALLER: Do you ever offer specials, like a Grandma Special where, you know, if I buy the books, I can have a digital copy so I can read it, too?

RUSH: We do not do… We don’t sell them. The deals that are available are available at, like, Amazon or iBooks or wherever you would go buy the book. We are not the actual sales agency. What are you…?

CALLER: Ah.

RUSH: You’re asking if you go out and buy a couple of hardcovers, will we fork over a digital version? Is that what you want?

CALLER: Yeah. I mean, I’m downsizing here at my house and not purchasing a lot of extra books, but I would like to read them at the same time. We don’t live in the same city. So I just wondered if there was some kind of special where I could read ’em, too.

RUSH: Well, we actively don’t have anything like that per se. But… What to do here? How many…? Do you have any of them at all? She’s talking about the famous, the irreplaceable, the indispensable Rush Revere book series. You don’t have any of them at all yet, right?

CALLER: No. Eventually, I want to buy the whole series. My grandsons just turned 8 and 10, and I think they’re ready to start reading them. Of course, I want to read them with them. So —

RUSH: Right. Right, right, right. You know what’s happening now?

CALLER: What?

RUSH: The whole audience is shouting at the radio, “Don’t fall for this! Don’t fall for this! She’s asking you for a freebie! Don’t fall for it, Rush! Don’t do it! Don’t do it!”

CALLER: (chuckles)

RUSH: That’s what half the audience is shouting at the radio.

CALLER: Well, that wasn’t my intent. I just wondered if there was any kind of special.

RUSH: I didn’t —

CALLER: I’m gonna buy them, so… (chuckles) I mean, that’s my plan. But —

RUSH: I’ll tell you what. If you’re gonna buy them, here’s what we do do. We’ve got all kinds of goodies and add-ons and specials that we can send you and your grandsons that are complements to the book series and so forth, learning plans and this kind of thing. We’ll do that if you go out and buy them, ’cause if I start giving them away, I’ve gotta give ’em away to everybody that asks. I can’t do that. But we’ll gladly send you a whole Rush Revere package. Hang on. We’ll get your address to do that.
