Top 5 Wednesday is GoodReads group where people discuss different bookish topic each week. This month is a rewind month, a chance for everyone to do topics they haven’t or did long ago.

My third choice is Fictional Jobs You’d Want to Have.

SF/F books have a lot of interesting jobs. Or at least they seem interesting when I’m reading about them and not even capable of doing them.

1, Starship captain/pilot
Perhaps the ultimate in a small-time entrepreneur jobs. I’m talking about a small ship with just one or two crew, like Millennium Falcon. A larger crew would require all sort of leadership and even diplomacy skills. But a small-time captain traveling around the galaxy, looking for the next job, meeting interesting people, and seeing a lot of strange places sounds great.

2, Jedi
Keeper of peace and defender of people sounds pretty awesome.

3, Superhero
Especially if I get powers to go with it.

4, Time traveler
I’d love to be able to actually experience past rather than just read about it. And going to the future would be pretty great, too.

5, Fairy Godmother
She solves problems for a lot of people both with her wits and her magical powers. (From Lackey’s 500 Kingdoms series.)
