If you are an avid book reader this may be your opportunity to create a side income. I haven’t seen huge payment claims for book readers which is a good thing, it means that pay is normal and there is less of a chance that the company’s are scamming readers. I didn’t think too much about it (becoming a reader for pay) until I came across the opportunity while doing research on another subject.
The average length of review requests stayed around 200 words (or better) as a standard sized review. This number would not include the synopsis of the story. I find it to be interesting to make money doing anything you love.
Most realize minimal skill is needed to be successful at this job. You basically have to have good recollection of what you read and be able to tell the story…..without telling the story! It requires more skill than you think, especially if you’ve never written a book review. I have listed a few resources to help get you started if you’re a newbie to book reviews. This category I would say is also an extra money only, you will not become wealthy doing this.
