Today’s post is all about bookish characters whose job I wish I had and honestly, I’m one of those people with major difficulty choosing anything, and that includes career and job stuff. I ended up in marketing (and I love what I do), but choosing what to study and ultimately what to do for a living was BRUTAL. Because I wanted (and still want) to do it all. For example, I’ve also seriously considered becoming a psychologist, a translator, an architect and a teacher. (Fun fact: I actually studied to become a teacher for about a year before I decided to study marketing instead) And while I still often think about all the other career paths I could have taken, there is one kind of job that ALWAYS comes back and that is bookish jobs.
Every time I watch or read a story with a character working in a bookstore, a library, or a publishing company, my eyes get all twinkly, my heart starts racing and I get super jealous of this fictional career and want it to be mine. I’m sure this is not that weird for a book lover, because don’t we all imagine making a career of our passion?
So that’s why I’m focusing today’s post on books with characters with bookish jobs. All of these books feature careers in bookstores, libraries or publishing and while some of them are a bit more fantastical than others, I still want them all to be real and hire me 🙂
