This morning I was thinking about the various occupations available within the literary industry and how cool it would be to wake up and be a paid part of that world.
Isn't that what we're really doing as bloggers after all? Being a part of this world that we love but don't get a W2 or 1099 form from.
As a voracious reader, the question I get most often is as I'm sure you guys do too, "would you ever want to write your own book?" My answer is NO! I've never had a desire to be a writer. I know that I'm not clever or creative enough to write anything even remotely entertaining. I am perfectly happy to be a reader and a reviewer. What I would have *loved* to be (and shame on me for figuring this out wayyyy too late) is an Editor. I love grammar and I love the review process. Whenever I read a book, whether written by a debut author or a seasoned writer, I always "grade" it in my head using an imaginary red pen ;) That's what I really love!
So if you could have ANY job in the literary/book industry, what would YOU be?
