TMST

 

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post where bloggers discuss a wide range of topics from books and blogging to life in general. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog. Feel free to leave your links in the comments if you are participating.




Bookish jobs: if you could do something in the bookish world for employment, what would you choose and why?



Librarian obviously. I even have the education for it! But jobs are rare.



But also something in publishing, but I have no idea what people actually do there. I kind of want to get paid for reading new manuscripts and that is it.



Being an author would be fun too, but someone who makes enough for me to only focus on that.






Next week: 

Do you reread? And are you ever tempted to change your ratings when you do?

  1. I think if I had the talent I'd like to be an author. Researching a crime novel really interests me! A librarian, too.

  2. I think I'm weird in that I wouldn't want a career with books. I'll just have fun reading them and stay away from the drama lol

  5. Indie book stores are a dying breed, but I would love to be a bookseller if job security wasn't an issue.

    1. I sure am, but then I got a steady job before I finished and I am still there

  11. "have no idea what people actually do there" <-- This made me laugh so hard because I also have no idea. I mean I assume some people read, some people edit, some people market, but to fill big publishing houses there must be a lot more going on!
