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!!
