The perfect job for a reader

Since graduating, Jacy has interviewed for several jobs. In June she was hired to temporarily fill a position that could become permanent. The work, while not in publishing, which is what she thought she wanted to do, is within her capabilities. She likes the people she works with. She has good hours, and she's still close to home. We're praying this turns into a permanent position for her.

But the best part, in my opinion, is that when it's a slow time at work, she's allowed to read. She's allowed to read whatever she wants to read. She sits at her desk and reads. Earlier this week she told me that in the last ten days she's read three books, each with 800+ pages. And not technical manuals. (She already read all of those.) She's reading classics.

The work tempo will pick up in the fall, but for now, I think she has the perfect job.
