I’m studying writing, I spend my spare time reading and writing, I write a blog about literature and reading… and now I work in a book shop, too.

On Tuesday I went in for an interview, and by Tuesday afternoon I was hired. I’ve only worked two days, but already I’m hooked. I get to talk to customers about what they might like to read. I get to spend time learning about books and authors and writing – and that’s a legitimate thing to do in my spare time. And even the busy-work of this job is sickly fun for me – shelving books. I love categorizing books! And so I think I’ve found a job I’m happy in.

And I’ve found another way to immerse myself more totally in the world of reading, writing and books.
