Bookish Britain: 60% Of Britons Want To Be Authors
A new YouGov study has dubbed the UK ‘Bookish Britain’.
Being an author has been declared as the most desirable job in Britain. 60% of people interviewed by YouGov said they would like to be an author. Additionally the smallest percentage would not like to be one at just 32% of people. The second and third sport were deemed equally as bookish. 54% of people said they would like to be a librarian and 51% stated an academic.
More people said they would like to be an author over a Hollywood movie star! Perhaps authors are becoming the new stars…
Author? Ha! Little do they know... Long hours, laptop for company, low pay, no pay, depression, doom, blackness... Or... Choose your hours, laptop doesn't argue, walk/cycle/swim when sun shines, score big contract, earn a zillion, choose hunk/hunkette, villa by the Med/Caribbean, live happily ever after... Take your pick! :-)
