Avid readers may find some paid work for reading books from home, including writing book reviews, editing books, writing their own books or working for an online publisher. These work-from-home positions are likely to be freelance or contract work, notes PopSugar.
Readers who have other skills, such as editing and writing ability, may find work reading books. A large number of potential clients looking for editors and writers exists in the freelance market, notes Forbes magazine.
Book lovers may also pick up a small job reading books and writing reviews for sites, like the Online Book Club for Readers. These positions do not pay very much and may only be seen as a way to get free books or make a few bucks on a side job. Another option is to try to start a successful book blog, where the blogger reads popular books and writes in-depth reviews. Money would be earned through onsite advertising.
