Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is characters with a job I would love to have. I’m pretty much doing my dream job right now – helping authors promote their books & introducing them to new readers! But there are a few other jobs I’d enjoy doing if ever given the chance. There’s only one realistic one, though (because, let’s face it, ain’t no way this bulbous body of mine will ever qualify for the FBI hahaha) – owning a bookstore! Here are some of my fave characters who own a bookstore ….
