A message from Harper & Sienna - Holiday shopping

Sienna thinks inside the box

Harper wants a few words with you

Dear Mommy's readers,

It is Holiday shopping time and we know many of our mom's readers use Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk to purchase books and just about everything else under the sun .. yes, even cat food and cat toys!!!

You can purchase from Amazon even when we are sleeping  ... which is most of each day .. and yes, we know we are cute 

Our mom does not earn money from Royal Musings and Royal Book News apart from a few dollars each month from the Amazon book links or Amazon's search boxes. 

Mom loves writing blog articles because she knows - and we as well -- that Royal Musings and Royal Book News reach people who are interested in royal history, past and present.

There are two Amazon search boxes (US and UK) on the right side of both blogs.  If you enter your first Amazon search through one of these boxes, Mommy earns a teeny percentage for each item you purchase ... and it is a teeny tiny percentage.  It takes a long time to earn an Amazon gift card.  Amazon.co.uk's threshold is £25.00 -- it takes about three years for Mom to enough pennies for a UK Amazon gift card.  We are asking mom's British readers to use her UK search box more often to purchase items, not just books because a small percentage goes toward another gift card.

Right now on eBay, mom is selling the fantastic Sotheby's catalog from the Hanover royal family's sale in 2006.   The catalog is massive and mom wants to sell it and use the profit toward a new camera lens.


Harper says it is really easy to use the links and boxes

There are no extra costs to you when you make purchases from links or through search boxes.

Sienna knows you like Amazon

You can access Amazon on a computer or your phone or your tablet

Our Mom loves Amazon gift cards so she can get more books. Or cat treats for us.  

But you cannot get this cat bed on Amazon.  Sorry. Mommy bought it at Buckingham Palace some years ago.

The holidays are all about love

You can also buy a cup of coffee for mom.

Unlike other blogs, mom has not set up a paywall or opened a Patreon account that would make you pay to read an article.

Thank you so much,

Sienna and Harper

PS   You can shop all year round with Amazon.

As I understand it, you can get a small percentage of whatever we buy through Amazon, regardless of whether it's a book or not, as long as we go to Amazon through your link. Is that correct?

That would be a very small percentage as long as you click on a link (a book advert) or use the Amazon search box on the right ... thanks

Marlene, tell Harper and Sienna I said thank you for the reminder. From now on I will use your link when I purchase from Amazon. It's my way of saying thank you for this wonderful blog that I thoroughly enjoy with my daily coffee. Happy Christmas and A Merry New Year to you and yours.

thanks Andrea ... the cats say Merry Christmas too .. just use a book link or the search box and you can get anything ... but you have to go through the blog every time you shop :)
