Among A.P. Carter's passions was a pamphlet he put together titled 'Bible Questions and Answers'. Ray Edenton recalls that A.P. Carter spent most of his time making music and selling his pamphlet.
"We were making thirty-five dollars a week from the station, but A.P. didn't want no money," says Edenton, "just let him sell books. I didn't know what a following he had. He'd get up and do a couple of songs, then he'd sing bass with the Carter girls. And the mail! They brought it in by the basketload. Boy, he sold those books. They loved him those country people."
