I type whatever search term comes to mind, and find what I find.  I could buy 
leatherette Louis Lamour, the poems of Richard Coe, a "vintage 1922 Maine ME 
Masons Masonic Secret Code Book," a "rare" set of British Exchequer reports, 
the "companion books version of the arabian nights," the "Scarlett Letter by 
Nathaniel Hawthorne-mint," or W. D. McCracken on Switzerland.  The Times review 
says McCracken is, "simple and not wholly unpleasing."  What churl dare ask for 

Hello, may I speak with...?  
Hi, my name is Dick.
I'm with the Fireman's Aunt Holiday Fund.  
How are you this evening?  
I'm calling to let you know that our need is very real at this time of year.  
Can we count on you/ your family/ your neighbors, to help fill our funding gap? 
In these difficult times we all feel immense pain.  
Organizations like ours are particularly strapped.
We generally use leatherette.  
We rely on people like you,
to help us out.
