A message from Harper and Fleur about Holiday shopping

Harper would like a few words with you

Fleur adds her first comments: Adopt, do not shop ... except when you need anything (books, pet supplies), please use Mom's Amazon links.  I have taken over Harper's cat seat by the window ... so mom says she wants to get another one. 

Dear Mommy's readers,

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

It is easy to use Amazon 

You know you want to shop on Amazon or

I love Christmas ... more pressies for me

Our mom does not earn money from Royal Musings and Royal Book News except for Amazon purchases when you click on a book link and purchase the book or use that link to shop on Amazon or  

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

Mom has included a link to a book.  Click it and you can continue to shop even if you do not buy the book.  She earns a tiny percentage for each item you purchase ... and it is a teeny tiny percentage.  It takes a long time to earn an Amazon gift card.'s threshold is £25.00 -- it takes about three years for Mom to earn enough pennies for a UK Amazon gift card. 

 I am asking mom's British readers to use a UK link often to purchase items, not just books. Every purchase helps.  Mom likes Amazon gift cards.  We do too.

Harper says it is straightforward to use the links and boxes

There are no extra costs to you when you make purchases from links.

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

Our mom loves Amazon gift cards so she can buy more books. Or cat treats!  

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,

 Harper and Fleur 

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.


Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

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 :)
