Your Life Sucks But You Get Free Books

Publishing Trends put out a media survey of publishing professionals, and the results indicate:

-73.6% in the 21-35 demographic of us are making less than people of our age with comparable education backgrounds

-half of all editors are secretly hoping to write a novel (told ya!)

-only 3.4% of respondents were willing to admit that they don't have time to read outside their jobs (that means there's lots of liars)

-the goal is to live to be 36: that's the age (on average) when pay increases, when 80% of us are awarded company expense accounts, and when we probably aren't anyone's Ass[istant] any more

Title stolen from GalleyCat as usual.
