Getting Paid to Read
Somehow, unbeknownst to me, I got on a book reviewer list, which means a new book arrives at my house every few weeks. I absolutely love to read, but I absolutely stink at finding books I enjoy reading. I’m not sure why I have such a hard time selecting books. I read online reviews, I search for best sellers and I even browse the book store for interesting reads, but nine times of ten I start reading a book and then find I’m completely disinterested in the story.
I received five books in the last month and a half and surprisingly enough I’ve really enjoyed reading each and every one! I liked the last one so much I read it from cover to cover in just over a day.
Books seem to be falling into my lap lately. I purchased a bunch of books from Barnes and Noble a few weeks back after discovering a Groupon that was set to expire and I cashed in e-rewards points for $15 worth of Borders Bucks, which also helped me add to my library. I even received a brand new book at my last doctor’s visit, which was entirely unexpected.
All of these books have really sparked my interest in literature again! When I get home from work instead of vegging out I take a nice walk, then grab a glass of water and find a comfortable spot on the couch to start reading.
Best of all I get paid for each review I write. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I receive new, interesting books to read and then get paid to write about them. It’s great!
