I got word from the campaign earlier today that approximately 20,000 copies of Ron Paul's new book, The Revolution: A Manifesto, have been sold so far! The book is still #1 on Amazon, and made its debut on the NYT best seller list at #7, which tracks the previous week. Publicity on all Ron Paul and other freedom loving sites has been tremendous which has no doubt led to this surge. Thank you all!!! As a result, the so-called "mainstream" media is now starting to pick up on our buzz. Let's really try to push sales over the weekend. A really big showing will lead to even more, and bigger, free publicity. Can you imagine interviews with Oprah or Larry King??!!!
Continue to Digg Ron Paul's official announcements, especially his new video, and official press release. If you haven't yet picked up a copy, buy one! And don't just buy one, check out fanofwalt's excellent suggestions on HOW to buy the book - linked here, and also reprinted below.
When you're in the bookstore, ask the salesperson if they have it stocked? Have they heard of it? Have they read it? How are sales going? Do they know who Ron Paul is? Chat them up about it! Definitely read fanofwalt's entertaining post about it.
If you're trying to save money, or if you're going to buy in bulk, you can get the best deal at Amazon. They're pricing the books at $11.55 per copy, 45% off the cover price of $21.00. Also, if you buy a total of $25 or more at Amazon, you get free shipping. Other good books to put you over the $25 limit include Dr. Paul's A Foreign Policy of Freedom Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship, Judge Andrew Napolitano's A Nation of Sheep, and Naomi Wolf's excellent book The End of America.
If you're a member of a book group, suggest that The Revolution be the next book your group reads. Buy extra copies for friends and family members. Stock up for future gifts. And of course, get a few copies for your local library. And not just the public library, as SilverRayn5 suggests below - your local High School library. Young people are the ones who really need to be reading this book, as it can make a profound impact on their lives.
If you're tapped out, then tell your friends to buy copies! The book still has a five star rating after 169 reviews on Amazon! If your friends all have copies, then ask your local library to buy copies.
