DREAM job alert! Fancy running a bookshop on a beach in the Maldives?

Can you think of anything more delightful?

Because we sure can’t. There’s nothing we love more than going away and knowing that for the next few days, we’ll be sitting on a beach or by pool, reading a book and sipping on cocktails.

It makes our souls happy, and is something we look forward to time after time.

Now, imagine doing that for a living.

A job has arrived on the horizon which will see the successful applicant running a pop up book shop in the Maldives. As well as dealing with the day to day business of the book shop, you will also be tasked in writing a ‘lively blog’, host writing courses and entertaining kids with a few storytelling sessions.

A spokesperson for the book company told the Guardian: “We want someone on the ground who is creative and inspiring and can maybe get more people to share the pleasure of reading, which is what people enjoy doing on holiday.
