A Note About Book Blogging 101

So, I wanted to make Book Blogging 101 a weekly feature, but I think it is going to have to be a little less frequent than that. The simple reason is I will run out of content before to long if I post every week.

From now on, Book Blogging 101 will be on the second Wednesday of the month.

Stay bookish, lovelies!

Medical Costs

This is a really hard post for me to write. I see the backlash in the community when similar posts go up, and I cringe. And now it is my turn.

In February, we got a letter that said I would be losing my health insurance. I planned as much as I could, and got a few months worth of meds on Manitoba Pharmacare for free, because my deductible had been met. Well, those meds are now out, and I had to get my refills last night.

I have an InnoviCares card, which gets me name brands at generic prices. Even with that, my medicine costs $375 (and change) per month.

I have been on the Nabilone, which has been controlling my pain very well, for a few months. It is great. I am starting Adderall today to try and see if it manages my ADD without headaches. I still deal with a large amount of fatigue, which makes a full time job not an option right now. I am looking and considering some part time work, though… even though I worry I am not ready to take on the work force again.

In the meantime, I have some ways you can help me out. And most of them won’t cost you a thing extra.

Affiliate Links

So, how affiliate links work is that you use them to buy your books, and then I make a small % of what you spend as a commission of sorts. You don’t pay anything extra, and I get a few cents per book towards my ongoing medical costs.

Chapters/Indigo Affiliate Link (Canada): Chapters/Indigo – Currently there is free shipping Canada-wide with no minimum. Check it out!

Amazon.ca Affiliate Link (Canada): Books on Amazon.ca

Book Depository (International — Free Shipping Worldwide!): Book Depository

Ko-fi

As I said, I hate asking for handouts, but the situation is kind of dire right now. This is a direct donation link, and I appreciate any amount you can spare.

Other Options

Would you be interested in buying handmade bookmarks or handmade cards from me? I received a major upgrade to my paper crafting arsenal this week, and if this is something people are interested in, I might look into it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I really appreciate it.

Stay bookish, lovelies!
