No more IMMs for Chey?

I just wanted to share why I won't be doing any more IMMs for a while.  

This morning I woke up to the news that my mom lost her well-paying job.  She and I have been alone since my dad passed away a few years back, so we only have each other to depend on.  This means that we're going to have to be more careful with our money, using it for only necessities.

As much as I want to believe that books are a necessity, I just can't go and spend the money we need on them.  Maybe this is a good thing.  Now I can catch up on reading all of the books I've been putting to the side.

Hopefully we'll bounce back quickly and this won't be much of a problem.
*fingers crossed*


  1. I hope things sort out for you and your Mum! But like you said, maybe this means you can now read all the other awesome books you have :) & there'll always be awesome bloggers who will send you books for fun! :D So if I ever ask for your address, don't be too shocked ;)

  2. That stinks! I went through the same thing when my parents were in the middle of the divorce. My mom and brother and I moved out on our own and rented a place. It was hard to make ends meet, so I had to start working full time and my mom had to take on a second job. It took some time, but things finally evened out again.

    I hope things work out for you guys soon. Hang in there!

  3. Things will work out. Don't forget sometimes other bloggers are so nice that they might send you books. I remember a while back, I had to cut back my hours on work, got a lot of books read. So don't feel bad. It happens. Come visit my blog over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love. i'm doing a 500 follower giveaway and a giveaway for matched.
