You are likely to be even more skeptical of my suggestion that you can make money by reading books. But it is possible. I will outline in this article how you can make money from home reading books.
People do a lot of things to earn an income. Some take up jobs and some do a business. But many people do not enjoy what they do. They have to bear with the work in order to earn money. Such people look for leisure and pastime activities to be free from the drudgery of work. There are also people who enjoy what they do. If your passion becomes your profession, you will be passionate about your profession!. Reading is a passion. Many people spend a considerable part of their free time in fulfilling their passion. But you have a wonderful opportunity to convert your passion into hard cash.
There may be several ways of doing this. I will outline just three methods:
1) Write book reviews:
Whenever I read a book review in a magazine, I would think, ‘Here I am spending my money to buy books. But these people earn money by writing book reviews for newspapers and magazines!’ Do you understand the message? Reading books need not be just a spending activity. It can be an earning activity as well. A large number of books are published and many books go unnoticed. You can write reviews of some of the books you read and get them published by magazines. Don’t worry that your review will not be accepted. By developing your own style of review and making your review interesting, you can make magazines accept your reviews. You have to do some research about what books to review and which magazines to target. But once you get the opening, there will be no let up in your success.
2) Analyze and summarize stories:
Book publishers and Film makers are flooded with stories and they don’t have the time to read all the materials they receive. But many of them will not like to miss a good story. You can approach some publishers and studios offering to help them with summarizing and presenting the highlights of the stories they receive. They will not mind paying you a small remuneration for your efforts. If you make your summaries interesting, you will be flooded with assignments.
3) Proof reading:
This is a conventional job. You can get the job of proof reading from any institution that is engaged in printing and publishing. The good news is that this job can be done through the internet. The publisher will send you the file for proof reading and you can return the updated file by email.
