How does one go about finding a job where you are paid to read?
I LOVE to read, and my dream job would be one where I am paid to read books to give my opinion of them. Do those sorts of jobs exist? I don't really want to proofread, and I don't care if the books are already released or if they are a "trial" to see if they are well received. If anyone has any ideas or info that might help me find my dream job, I would appreciate it!! Thanks for your help!!

Yes, every publisher has that job, although you may have to do other things as well. It requires a BA in English minimum and a desire to be in the publishing industry. You become first reader for non-agent submitted books and sample chapters.
