Your Great and Marvelous Snarkiness,
I am a newbie at writing, but an old hand at reading. Read constantly.
Are there any jobs in this industry that just require reading? Could I actually make money reading?
No. Even if a job is mostly reading (slush pile sorter, MWA Best Novel judge, etc) you still have to report on what you read. And most of these jobs are unpaid anyway cause there are a LOT of people who like to read. A LOT.
