Do you love to read? Wish to make some money from it? If so, this might be the perfect side gig for you.
WordsRated, a non-commercial research organization that focuses on analyzing book-related data, is paying people $200 to read books it recommends.
Most of the time, when you read books, you do it for free. After all, this is something you enjoy. So, why not take this rare opportunity to earn some money by simply immersing yourself in a good read?
With that said, there is a catch. You must log in a few important details while reading. You will be instructed to make notes and keep track of things like:
- Locations (where the story takes place)
- Characters by gender
- The number of sentences a female or male character has
- The rate of occurrence of certain phrases or words
- Which animals appear in the book
- Other books referenced in the story
- The number of questions asked throughout the book
WordsRated makes it clear that it uses this information to develop unique, data-driven statistics and studies about books.
No limit on how much you can make
There is no limit to the number of books you can read, so it is up to you whether you read one or several per month. It’s an excellent gig to supplement your income or perhaps turn into a full-time job.
“We give you books. You read them. We give you cold, hard cash.
We’re looking for people capable of devouring hundreds of pages with ease while paying attention to detail. Your job is to read the book and take notes on specific details.”
It sounds tedious, but that’s a fantastic deal at $200 a pop!
What books are you expected to read?
You may be thinking that the recommended books aren’t that good. Well, you’d be mistaken. The focus right now is on women’s representation in modern literature, and the selection will be drawn from 2022 New York Times bestseller lists.
There are popular titles like Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. This novel has been sitting on the newspaper’s fiction bestseller list for 157 weeks. You might also have heard that it is currently being adapted into a movie, which will be released later this year and will star Daisy Edgar-Jones.
You will also find titles like The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, which has spent 43 weeks on the same list.
Even better, all the reading materials will be provided by WordsRated, so you won’t have to pay for anything. Win-win-win!
Anyone aged 18 and above with a passion for reading and a good command of English can apply for this position. Since it is a remote job, you can work as much as you want, anytime you want, and from anywhere you want.
Is this something you would be interested in? Millions of people would like to get paid to read bestsellers, and now you can actually do it.
