As a potential customer, I would like to know what makes this book worth the $20 (plus shipping) as opposed to a $5 blank book or daily calendar I could pick up anywhere?

Here are a few reasons:
1) The average blank journal are 50 to 160 pages, if you went that route then you would be back up to the same price.

2) They aren't designed my me.   This comes with an elegant cover illustrated by yours truly.

3. You are supporting the independent artist.  Currently, my income consists of Freelance jobs and what money I make from the swag I sell Online.  Besides, wouldn't you want to do your part to keep her from starving?

Are the pages blank? Does each page have the date? Is there a form that you fill in blanks for each medication?

Each page has a day, place for "how I felt today" and "pills and times of day" and a place for notes.

Excellent.  I was actually curious & not being my snippy self.  I'm wrapping up the stage where relatives are getting older & they're on all kinds of pills (and creams and some unmentionables).  I thought this would be a great idea to help keep track of everything both for them & their caretakers.

I shall pimp it mightily... if only to get the little one a real hat & something other than a hanger to play with. :-D

I compleatly agree.  I designed it for my wife, however her mother could use it as well, except for the fact that she can't at the stage she is at, however this is ideal for older people. I hope this idea catches on, because, lets face it, often people on medication don't talk to their doctor until they see how it affects them.  If they write it down, then if they don't see the side affects, then the doctor will.

Here is a preview of what a page in the book looks like.  As you can see, you will have plenty of space to write what you need.
