A book/writing related job that you would love to do?
When I was little, I always thought it would be fun to be a librarian, but then I discovered that they don’t just get to sit in the library and read all day. It was real work, and those librarians don’t get to read all day. And I could never be a reviewer for a living. I don’t think I’m discerning enough about the things I like and dislike, nor am I good enough with words.
So instead, if I could choose any job related to books, I think I would like to work as a graphic artist, creating covers for special edition books. The fancy ones, like the Barnes and Noble Collectible Editions or Orion’s Gollancz Imprints of the Discworld Novels.
If you could have any job in the publishing industry, what would you pick?
