Calling all bibliophiles– if you like reading, then you’re in luck as you will now get paid to read books by a company with a single book fetching you up to $200
WordsRated, a website that does research studies and evaluates book content, is searching for a variety of “bibliophiles-at-large” to devour popular books.
The lucky applicants are going to receive a hefty sum of money for every single book they complete, after jolting down a number of essential information.
The job advertisement explains what details the reader will be required to take note of. This will mainly consist of the various characters in the book by gender, the variety of sentences given to the male vs. female characters, areas, the number of questions asked during the book, and what animals make appearances in the book, to name a few.
WordsRated explained: “We will use this data to create distinct, data-driven research studies and statistics about books.”
And they summed up the task, saying: “We give you books. You read them. We offer you cold, hard cash.”
“We’re looking for people who are able to devour hundreds of pages with ease while focusing on data. Your job is to read the book and keep in mind on particular details.” They reiterated that they’ll pay out for every book ended up, verifying there’s no limitation whether it’s “one book per month or one book every day.” Currently the focus is on the representation of ladies in modern books, and the selection will be pulled from The New York Times bestselling books from 2022.
Among the titles that could make the list are The 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid, which has actually been on the paper’s fiction best-seller list for approximately 43 weeks.
And Where The Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens, which has enjoyed 157 weeks on the very same list. The book is currently being turned into a movie, starring Daisy Edgar-Jones, due for release later on this year.
However applicants will not require to worry about sourcing their reading product, as the titles will be provided, and offered by WordsRated, so the readers aren’t out of pocket.
Daniel McLoughlin, research director at WordsRated, said: “This is a possibility for book enthusiasts to make a little bit of additional cash on the side while doing what they like.
“For our group of researchers to check out 20 books, it would take forever, but for 20 people to check out 1 book each or 10 people to read 2 books each will be much quicker.”
“We hope this can be a win-win for everyone where readers can get their hands on books for free and earn money to read them while WordsRated can produce more studies that will hopefully have an influence on publishing, writing and books as a whole.”
The initial unit is expected to begin the job by June, with a 2nd round being expected to begin the work in August, with no set time frame on the role.
They theorize they’ll first take anywhere between 5 and 10 people, with the aim of developing a base of about 20 reliable readers.
As the business is remote, they stated the job can be slotted into your extra time, and can be done anywhere in the world, including the U.S.
Eventually the ideal prospect needs to have a “enthusiasm for reading,” the task advertisement stressed.
