The luxury resort is looking for a "bookseller on the deserted island" and we want IN!
A luxury resort in the Maldives is looking for a "bookseller on the deserted island" in what is described as a "dream job" for a young 20-year-old.
The only catch? It does not pay very well. "The reward is ridiculous, but the benefits to the outside world are unrivaled," bookseller Philip Blackwell said. The Guardian.
"The role will evolve and it is partly up to you to get the best out of this unique opportunity, it is a dream job for many people, and if I were 25, I would do it."

Hands up if you like to read?
The role, based in the Soneva Fushi resort, where prices range from $ 2700 to $ 35,000 per night, would be suitable for someone with "a passion for books, the ability to engage guests of all ages". The successful applicant would live near the resort for a period of at least three months.
"We want someone on the ground to be creative and inspiring, and maybe more people can share in the fun of reading, which people like to do on vacation," said Blackwell.
They must be able to entertain children and write creative courses for guests. They will also be required to write an "entertaining and lively blog that reflects the tiring life of a bookseller in the desert island".
The role is reminiscent of Tourism Queensland's "Best Job in the World", which offered the winning candidate a six-month role as "caretaker" for the Great Barrier Reef Islands. That campaign attracted more than 35,000 applications.
