Booklist is Looking for You

At a time when book reviews are bought and sold almost as often as loaves of gluten free bread, it's quite nice to know that a publication like Booklist Magazine still exists.

Booklist, which has been published by the American Library Association for the past 100 years, pumps out short, snappy reviews, often in themed issues, at the rate of about 8,000 a year. And its doing it from right here in Chicago. Booklist deals exclusively in recommendations, opting not to waste reviewers' time, or yours, with the negative and simply covers as much as possible.

If this sounds like your thing, perhaps you should consider interning for Booklist. The publication announced just this week that it's in the market for new team members, and at just 8-12 hours a week, it's likely doable for those with day jobs.
