FAIRWAY, Kan. - “The Colbert Report” highlighted local Kansas bookstore Rainy Day Books.
Stephen Colbert is trying to get the book California by Edan Lepucki on the New York Times Best Seller’s List without it being sold on Amazon.
During his show, he mentioned buyers can order the book through other stores, including Rainy Day Books in Fairway.
“You know what, he’s my hero,” Vivien Jennings of Rainy Day Books said. “He’s standing up to Amazon and he’s my hero.”
The store started getting online orders the same night as Colbert’s shout out.
