  2. Being a bookbinder would be very interesting.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.


  3. I love how you listed books with bookish jobs that sound fun. I think all book lovers dream of opening a bookshop. Funny enough, I just read a memoir about just that and, wow, there's a lot more to it than I would have thought!

    Happy TTT!

  4. Interesting that The Bookbinder of Jericho was released in the US as The Bookbinder, and different cover. I've got it reserved, thanks.

  5. I love how you spotlighted characters and their jobs as ones you would like. Fun!

  6. The Bookstore Sisters by Alice Hoffman - Has been on my TBR list for a while. I really need to get that one read.

    Great list!
