If money was no concern, what bookish jobs would you do for free? Would you consider one of my bookish jobs?
So….this sounds like a fun topic! Plus, I need a break from writing reviews.
I’m not suggesting that individuals shouldn’t receive a fair paycheck for their bookish jobs. I’m simply dreaming about bookish jobs I would do for free if money were no option.
What bookish job would you do for free?

Bookish Jobs I’d Do For Free
I would work in her Imagination Library Organization as a Literacy Advocate unless I had my own millions to spend!
Do you love the Helpful Honda commercials where a spokesperson from the Honda corporation sponsors random acts of kindness and surprises recipients with gifts?! In the bookish version, I’d love to be the one surprising librarians and bookstore owners!
Travel Companion For Authors Researching Their Next Books
Wouldn’t it be fun to accompany your favorite authors on their research trips?!
Little Free Library Promoter
My goal would be to establish a Little Free Library in every neighborhood in America! Everyone who once dreamed of owning their own bookstore can have their own Little Free Library!
Book Club Advocate
It would be fun to travel the world and advocate for at least one book club in every city! I could encourage each club to find its unique niche and purpose and provide resources and cheerleading. I believe each person should have one book club experience at some point in life. Talking about books is a shortcut to establishing deep connections with others.
Indie Bookstore Patron
If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting an independent bookstore, you know the joyful feeling of being among friends, your “people.” You might even know the staff who call you by name and know your reading tastes. During the pandemic, most independent bookstores continued to thrive. They found ways to deliver books into people’s hands and lives. If I had the time and money, I would visit every independent bookstore and make a purchase. We must support our indies and libraries!
As a book fairy, I’d place favorite books in waiting rooms and plane/bus/train terminals. I’d travel around the country bestowing books on Little Free Libraries and placing books in teachers’ break rooms. I’d leave books under trees and on park benches and on bistro tables. Books under every Christmas Tree? No Problem!
Book Recommender Extraordinaire
I would know the perfect book recommendation for each person I meet. I would be like the librarian in What You Are Looking For is in the Library and my recommendations would be life-changing! Lydia calls a “bibliotherapist” in her post today.
I’d also love to be Cussy’s assistant and bring literature to the children and their families in the hills of Kentucky. I’m not sure about the “riding a donkey” part of the job! Read all about Cussy in The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek.
Owning and driving a bookmobile into underserved neighborhoods would be a joyful and rewarding bookish job! Easier than a pack horse librarian!
